SomeSensePlease "Instead of following people home from bars".

Easy fix for the bars, just move out in to the county or city that the County Sheriff patrol and nobody will be followed, The Sheriff doesn't allow DWI arrest or I mean, he will cover them up for you if you ask him!!! Oh wait, that might not work, I guess you have to be his buddy or one of his supervisors!!

good project. Several other things would make the Marshall world safer for peds and saner living: lower the in town speed limit (try 20) and enforce it. Keep all the commercial and trucks on the highway and loop. Stop using residential streets for zoom-throughs. Put in more stop signs. Dont allow cell phone use by drivers.

After painting bike lanes on the busiest streets in Marshall, you obviously can't ask the city of Marshall for safety advice.

There are a couple of marked crosswalks across College Drive near the college. I always see wheelchair-bound students at them in the cold or rain waiting to cross ....I always stop for them but cars continue to zoom around me.

Instead of following people home from bars, maybe the police could ticket all the drivers who don't yield to pedestrians in crosswalks.

The 2 marked crosswalks across Lyon St at Independence Park are also routinely ignored by drivers.
