I am amazed that Michael the greeter at Brooks Street has not yet caused a serious accident.
His spinning, waving and shouting is a tremendous distraction to Coast Highway drivers approaching a pedestrian crosswalk from both directions as well as turning left into Jack in the Box from north bound lanes.
The traffic is traveling at a fairly fast speed through what is already a dangerous crosswalk and intersection and the last thing we need is for someone to wave or even glance at Michael and not see a pedestrian in the crosswalk. There has to be a safer place for him to perform.
I am writing this letter in the hope that someone at city hall or the police department will take preventative steps before someone is killed or hurt.
