How much time is a life worth?

Re: Pedestrian safety, by Suzette Porter, Jan. 4
Editor:
What is needed is a dedicated walk signal so there is no overlap between a walk signal and a green arrow. Drivers who have a green arrow consider people are jaywalking because they see the arrow and not the walk signal. The light duration is generally a long duration so a slight modification could easily be timed in. How much time is a life worth? And right turn on red is allowed only after a complete STOP and even when they stop at a crosswalk/stop sign they are through the crosswalk before they stop (see Highland/Nursery). Start ticketing people.

Someone local should be sent to other cities to compare notes on safety and also public transportation, etc.

Just a thought from a Boston transplant, where I felt safer when on foot or bike.
