Q. I work in the Goldbelt building on the corner of Glacier Ave and 10th St. Their are crosswalks at Glacier and 10th, and F street and 10th. Once again I've come within 2 feet of being used as a speed-bump while crossing IN A CROSS WALK. This morning there wasn't any traffic from Glacier Ave or Egan when we began to cross at 10th and F, but the light at the bridge turned green. Before we could get across the 4 lanes, traffic from the bridge was coming FAST. We had to stop 3/4 of the way across to keep from getting plowed over by a guy in a pickup truck who then flipped us off. He went past at over 30 miles an house passing with 2 feet! Every day it's a close call in these two crosswalks, too close. Can you help?
