Ann Arbor City Council Failed to Change Cross-Walk Ordinance

The Ann Arbor city council again postponed action on a proposed ordinance change regarding cross-walks, reported MLive.

"Citizens should not have to feel that they have to stop if they don't believe it is safe to do so," said Council Member Stephen Kunselman.

A majority of council members, including Kunselman, voted 6-4 last year to eliminate the requirement for motorists to stop for pedestrians waiting at the curb to enter a crosswalk. Mayor John Hieftje blocked the council's action with his veto.

However, Hieftje is retiring from office next month and the action will be voted on again.
