South Portland – even canines – unite for safety

Jake Canine Jake Canine To the editor:

We canines of South Portland love and protect our people. Walking in our city for humans and canines can be dangerous. It is difficult and dangerous to cross Cottage Road and Broadway, especially with children. Cars have hit other cars stopped at cross walks, nearly pushing the car into a child. Other times, cars try to drive around the car stopped for a person in a crosswalk. I myself was struck by a car while crossing Broadway on a leash with my family member. Fortunately, we both survived.

On behalf of children, seniors and all citizens, (including canine) please slow down. Please stop for pedestrians in the cross walk.
