To the Editor:

On Aug. 14, there was a young man involved in a pedestrian accident on Route 7. This young man later died.

This has happened before.

People of New Milford and our elected officials .. .perhaps now is the time to put in well-marked crosswalks and install crossing lights.

How about sidewalks? I see our high school students walking along Route 7 all the time.

Please act before there are more tragedies. We are no longer a sleepy little town.

Whom do we contact to try to get this done?

(Editor’s Note: The Spectrum suggests calling state Sen. Clark Chapin, state Rep. Cecilia Buck-Taylor, state Rep. Richard Smith or Mayor Pat Murphy regarding safety along Route 7 in New Milford.)
