In this Strange But True tale from Tsawwassen, this image was sent in of a brand new crosswalk installation on 53A Street. But take a look at this truck which on Friday the 13th was parked right on the sidewalk at 8:15 a.m, blocking the access used by kids on their way to school.
And who was in the truck? It was the contractor, Crown Contracting, (their website says they build “bright, safer streets”) which had won the bid to construct the crosswalk in the first place. The driver left the vehicle blocking the sidewalk while he read through his cell phone , despite the fact there is lots of parking on the street.
Perhaps the City of Delta should have a policy requiring their contractors improving intersections for pedestrians to keep their trucks on the road surface, and set the right standard. Build it into the contracts.
