The new term of the day was pedestrian crossover. Everyone is quite familiar with pedestrian crosswalks but the first-ever crossover in the city was unveiled at Earl of March Secondary School in Kanata on June 13.

“Pedestrians have the right of way. Period,” said Coun. Keith Egli, chair of the city’s transportation committee.This year, the Highway Traffic Act was revised to include a new type of crossover that can be installed on low speed, low- and medium-volume roads.
