City of Charleston Aims to Improve Crosswalks

A pedestrian fatality in October has Charleston city leaders talking about safety at pedestrian crossings. At a meeting this week the city's Strong Neighborhoods Task Force talked about the issue, in particluar Greenbrier Street, where the pedestrian died last month. The Daily Mail reports the city may look at improving existing crosswalks with more visible markings and adding crosswalks where none exist. In cases where it's a state road, the state will have to approve the work.
