My kids ride their bikes to Bowditch Middle School via the bay trail and cross the crosswalk on Beach Park and Swordfish. This morning, Aug 29, 2013 a woman came inches from striking my kids with her car as they were crossing on the crosswalk. I am witness to it because I also ride my bike with my kids and watch as they cross that busy intersection.
I managed to stop and inform the woman that it's the law to stop for pedestrians at the crosswalk. She claimed she did not see the crosswalk. I rode to examine the area and feel it should be repainted with beacon signals to avoid any future incidents.
I feel the crosswalks on Beach Park Blvd/Swordfish and Beach Park Blvd/Tarpoon need to be repainted with beacon signals.
