Nearly hit by car

To the Editor:

Last Friday at 1:45 p.m. I was walking my bike across Dearborn Ave. when two young women in a Plymouth Neon car ran the red light and barely missed me.

All traffic was stopped in both directions on River Road when out of the blue came this car as I was walking the last ten feet or so. The driver was looking down at her lap and I figured she was holding a drink but later I presumed she may have been texting.

Is River Road safe? In Salem I see police patrolling regularly but nary a one on River Road.
