City must act quickly to discourage jaywalking

(Continued)

The city will also install signs warning pedestrians to use crosswalks on Haverhill’s busiest streets. Kocher said such signs are common in other communities, but not in Haverhill.

The ideas of education and signs are good ones, but only if the city moves on them quickly, especially now that a resident has stressed the extent of the problem to officials.

Failing to act soon amounts to risking serious injury, or worse, to a child or other pedestrian.
