Newton Center pedestrians feel less safe

Dorothea Hass, senior project manager for the pedestrian advocacy group, Walk Boston, said that her group often supports concurrent signalization because it shortens the pedestrian wait for traffic, but never at the expense of safety. “I think this intersection is unsafe and the [designer’s] primary concern has been vehicular movement,” said Hass. “I’m shocked that they haven’t given more consideration to pedestrian safety.”
