Your Views: Drivers are not the only safety threat

To the editor:

The city has received a $45,000 app that allows “pedestrians and bicyclists to report near miss collision incidents with drivers and note ‘dangerous locations.’”

Will the app also allow drivers to report bicyclists who don’t stop at stop signs? Can motor vehicle operators alert the city to pedestrians who wander into crosswalks while deeply engrossed in their mobile devices without a single glance to the left or right? Will drivers also be able to “navigate the city more safely” as NoVA Families for Safe Streets hopes to do for walkers and bikers? Just asking.
