Walk don't run

IMG_0717.JPGPeople trying to cross street in Montreal have always faced an uphill battle. Now the south-west borough is cracking down on drivers who don't stop at crosswalks. The borough has installed new signs that jut up from the middle of the road, warning drivers of a hundred dollar fine if they don't stop for pedestrians. Derek Robinson lives in St-Henri and lobbied for the new signs. Veronique Fournier is a councillor in the Sud-Ouest borough. We spoke to them both.  (Photo: Denis Calnan/CBC)
