ON three occasions in the past week as I have been driving towards pedestrian crossings people have walked from the footpath onto the crossing in front of me, looking neither to left or right, while texting on their mobile phones.
I AGREE with Barry Ford, (NDL, June 18). Pedestrians should give oncoming traffic some thought when only one car is coming to the crossing. Why step out in front of it when there are no other cars following; let it go and then cross the road.
MARK Rodda suggests readers should ask someone from Armidale about his alleged “exorbitant” rental costs increase by changing their phone to the NBN. Maybe he should do that before making his comments.
