City needs to take initiative

Regarding the tragic loss of Mrs. Krueger’s life at the 12th Street/PCH intersection, can the City please take the initiative on similarly improving the crosswalk at Main/PCH. I, along with most other people I know, have been nearly struck by vehicles while lawfully using that crosswalk.

At times as a pedestrian, I feel like I’m stuck in the game of Frogger trying to safely cross there. And life shouldn’t be a game.

Merely restriping and improving signage could save another’s life. Let’s not wait until it’s too late before additional improvements are made.
