Pay attention and keep to the right

Mike Swadener | Tuesday, October 9, 2007

Before Dan McInnis gets vilified for not moving to avoid the inattentive woman on the sidewalk (“Rights of the sidewalk,” Oct. 8), let me say that he is supported, at least in principle, by the Indiana Code, 9-21-17-11, which states, “Pedestrians shall move, whenever practicable, upon the right half of crosswalks.”

It is customary in this country, codified in law, to keep to the right. Come on, people, you are supposedly among the brightest of citizens. All I ask is that you try to pay attention to the world around you.
