Woman, 30, hit by SUV as she crosses the street.

A pedestrian was struck and injured this morning while crossing Westchester Avenue in downtown Port Chester.

The police booth should be reinstalled at Main and Lower King Sts. and Westchester Ave intersection. That officer (an auxiliary cop would even work) should direct traffic, assist pedestrian crossings and instill a police presence downtown to coincide with the bicycle cop patrol.

Mr. Revas (sp) has been complaining to the board and the police chief about this for the longest time. Are you all listening now?!?!?!?!?!?

This is the worst street ever. The lights are not correct. It says DON'T WALK forever. Drivers just keep on going. I guess pedestrians do not have the right of way. Fix the damn Walk And Don't walk sign!!! I cross this street often and I just run

The problem is not that the pedestrian cross doesn't work, it's that when the light is on for people to cross the street the drivers have arrows to turn. That's what makes it dangerous. The people are supposed to walk and the cars with a green arrow are supposed to go at the same time. It is like that all over New York. In Greenwich, all traffic stops and the people cave 20 or 30 seconds to cross the street. That is what needs to be corrected.
