RFTA drivers need improvement

Since the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority is hoping that voters will approve a property rate increase, they might want to consider, first, a public-relations effort with voters.

I walk to work twice a day, crossing Durant Street, sometimes more frequently. RFTA buses seldom stop for pedestrians in crosswalks along that route. They drive as if they own the road, regardless of locals, bikers and tourists who expect civilized bus drivers to stop at crosswalks and watch out for children — especially on bikes. RFTA drivers don’t own the road.

Voters might be more sympathetic if the drivers were more courteous and careful of voters.
