To the Editor:


Nov. 28, 2018:  My reason for writing is to make the community aware of the danger of pedestrian injuries in our westside neighborhood from lack of street lighting. This is something I have witnessed since my husband and I moved into Stoneleigh Plaza 20 years ago.

The lights are dim and cannot illuminate the commuters leaving the train, most of whom are dressed in dark clothing, and so drivers really cannot see them at all. The pedestrians have no idea they are in danger, and those in the car are busy going where they are going. A major accident is waiting to happen.

My solution:  Have strips of light reflectors to put on shoes, coats, hats, whatever, available to passengers as they depart the train, in a big box with big signs. This would not be costly and certainly would be worth a try. Before we have a tragedy.

I would also suggest that pedestrians avail themselves of sidewalks, where available. Last night, when I was driving up Pondfield between Midland and Locust, there was a pedestrian dressed in dark clothing walking on the side without the sidewalk. I only saw her at the last minute.
