A quick word of thanks…

4:54 PM PST on December 20, 2007

...to the police office directing traffic at the corner of Fairfax and 3rd yesterday afternoon.

While leadership from City Hall seems bound and determined to figure out creative ways to move more cars and not more people; this officer not only held up traffic trying to make a right to go North on Fairfax so pedestrians could cross the street safely...he actually encouraged pedestrians to take their time to cross the street as safely as possible. When a car tried to speed us along by inching up on the crosswalk he earned a sharp rebuke from the officer and was further delayed.

So let it be know, at one cross walk, on one day...Car wasn't king.
