Douglas Highway a dangerous road

Letter to the editor

Posted: Thursday, December 11, 2003

I just want to make a comment on the pedestrian that was hit by a car on Douglas Highway. I drove back and forth on Douglas Highway for one year and during those trips I was surprised I didn't hit anyone. People walk up and down that highway in the dark, there are no street lights, and when it's raining and dark you can't see anything - and all of a sudden someone will dart out right in front of you running across the street.

It is very dangerous and I am surprised this hasn't happened more than it has. I hope the pedestrian is okay and that the driver realizes that if there were proper lighting probably it would be a lot safer for the pedestrians.
