ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - A Newfoundland city councillor says council will likely discuss the issue of putting an additional crosswalk on a deadly stretch of road.
But St. John's Coun. Debbie Hanlon says a crosswalk on Thorburn Road may not make a difference, as many drivers do not slow down for pedestrians.
Hanlon was on hand for a protest yesterday in the area of last week's pedestrian-vehicle accident that claimed the life of 21-year-old Erin Bursey.
Residents say its the latest in a string of accidents on the busy road and is calling for council to install another crosswalk.
Organizer June Sharpe says if a crosswalk will not fix the problem, then the speed limit should be reduced from 50 km/h to 30 km/h.
