Reader feedback

Susan Rosenfeld from Sheepshead Bay says:
The driver must have been distracted. How else did this motorist not see her. No matter where she was crossing pedestrians always have the right of way. She had every right to expect to be able to cross safely. The motorist should have been arrested.
