A local pedestrian safety advocate has launched an online petition drive to prompt state lawmakers to pass a Michigan crosswalk law.
Former Ann Arbor school board member Kathy Griswold says crosswalks in her city lack the proper infrastructure, such as good lighting, to be safe to use. She points to a new mid-block crossing on Huron east of State as an example where lighting has been an issue.
Griswold says a state crosswalk law would mean standardized, safe pedestrian crossings across Michigan.
