I enjoy walking daily in downtown Canton or in my Canton South area. So why do many drivers ignore all Ohio traffic laws?


I see it every day. Walking in a Canton marked crosswalk or "walk" and "red" light, the pedestrian has the right of way by law.


Also, many drivers don’t stop on the traffic signal pad to change traffic flow. Why? We need more crosswalks striped, too, to help walkers and drivers.


Canton drivers need to do better. Safety begins with them.
