Letter to the Editor: Beware of Considerate Behavior

By RICHARD NEBEL
Los Alamos

One of the nice things about living in Los Alamos is that we have so many considerate drivers. 

However, this can also cause problems. My understanding is that you yield for pedestrians in crosswalks, but you don’t yield for golf carts. Yet I don’t know how many times I have seen automobiles stop at the crosswalk at the western end of the golf course and wave golf carts out into the middle of Diamond Drive. 

Sooner or later one of these good Samaritans is going to lure a golf cart out into Diamond Drive where they will be T-boned by a car doing 40 (or more) mph. Please, if you
have the right of way, take it. That’s what other drivers expect you to do. Doing anything else is dangerous. At the very least, the rules for this crosswalk need to be clarified so we are all on the same page.
