Editorial: Crosswalk at 116 & Davenport

Editorial: Crosswalk at 116 & Davenport, Metamora Herald

 Most folks in Metamora and the surrounding burgs have traveled on Illinois Route 116 past the square here in Metamora. Unfortunately, not everyone stops at the crosswalk on Davenport when pedestrians are present. There are laws and ordinances in place that govern this crosswalk, but many drivers just continue right by. There are no lights here, just some signs that inform drivers of their responsibility to stop.
Please be sure to do the right thing and stop when  pedestrians are attempting to cross this busy thoroughfare.

  1. Does this cross walk have a button to push to make lights on the side blink off and on. This would def make drivers more aware and safer ‘
