Dear editor,

I understand that we want to keep every pedestrian safe as they cross our streets here in Lander. In Colorado, they came up with painting the crosswalk bright red. This was a major intersection where there were an astounding number of pedestrian fatalities (Colfax Ave & Colorado Blvd). I propose the WYDOT do the same! It should not cut into their budget and yet it makes it safe for our Lander residents and tourists community able to safely cross the street.
