Editor, the Times:
I'm writing this letter about the increasing regulatory disregard for pedestrians in electronically controlled crosswalks.
It's not as if it's a new device - I'm 50 years old and they have been around since I was a kid. The exception is one (type) to assist the blind.
In my work my legs are a great asset - a six-month broken leg recovery or, heaven forbid, a head injury from being run down is not where I expect to be.
I have been swerved at, sped up at, cursed at or not seen at all. Mission drivers seem to be the worst.
The appropriate action is to depress the black brake pedal next to your gas pedal. And I will hurry out of your path. After all, it is a rush rush world.
