Pedestrian safety: Safety can’t be painted

Dear Editor,

Under Oregon law there is a crosswalk at every intersection; a pedestrian is crossing the roadway in a crosswalk when any part or extension of the pedestrian, including but not limited to any part of the pedestrian's body, wheelchair, cane, crutch or bicycle, moves into the roadway in a crosswalk with the intent to proceed. If you see a person in the roadway, and you’re able to do so in time, you must stop and let them cross.
I was hit by a car while walking in a signaled, painted crosswalk, as was a local woman . . .
