Today I was walking my dogs before 8 a.m., and while crossing PCH at Ruby Lantern, I was within inches of being run over by a car turning left onto PCH. If I hadn’t run, I would have been hit. This happens all the time; it’s not the first incident.

One time I was crossing PCH at Blue Lantern Street and a car turning left from Blue Lantern onto PCH nearly hit me. I reported both instances to the Police Department. While reporting the Blue Lantern incident, I was advised by them to go cross at Ruby Lantern. Well it’s not any safer there! When will the city take heed of its pedestrians; it’s a “ticking bomb.” We need left turn/right turn arrows.
