The concern and letters about the dangerous Monon Trail crossing at Main Street are well founded. Many factors contribute to the very likely occurrence of a tragedy.
The proximity of vehicles and pedestrians is very close and in a high traffic concentration.
There are many visual attractions that increase the likelihood of momentary distraction.
Many drivers and pedestrians are not sure who has the right of way, and many of those who do are unsure the others share that knowledge.
None of the viable solutions are perfect, inexpensive or without some hindrance to smooth traffic flow, but angry street and trail users will continue, and rear end accidents and even worse, injured or dead people absolutely will happen!
