Description

I was crossing Orange St. in a marked crosswalk with a "State Law Yield to Pedestrians" sign in the middle of the street. I was pushing my five month old son in his stroller. A man in a blue pickup truck started yelling obscenities then hit the gas and nearly ran us over - I had to run out of the crosswalk to avoid being hit. What good are crosswalks if they're blatantly ignored? Why haven't I ever seen police ticketing at a crosswalk? This is too much. I would happily give the police a description if I thought they were interested.
