Those of us that live or travel along highway 395 know how dangerous it is to cross the highway.  Lone Pine has one traffic light and Independence and Big Pine have none.  Children need to cross the street to go to school and County workers in Independence have to cross the street to go to the post office, as their job.  During holidays and special event days, it can be a death defying event to try to cross town on foot. Often large trucks and other vehicles  can block the view of the crossing pedestrian. These are situations in which flashing crosswalk can be tremendously helpful!  Studies as far back as 1970 have shown that simply painted crosswalks lull pedestrians into a false sense of security.  The flashing crosswalk on the other hand can be extremely helpful in alerting drivers to the presence of pedestrians, and are being installed all over the state.  let's let CALTRANS know that we would like to be able to safely cross the street in our communities!
