People not so friendly at cross signal

The mayor says Dixon is friendly. Not when you want to cross the street by McDonald's. People make a right turn.

Last night, I waited for the cross signal, and two cars turned. I then proceeded to cross. Some lady in a white car stopped and threw her hands in the air and gave me a look like I wasn't allowed to cross on the pedestrian cross signal. I looked at her and said, "I have the cross pedestrian signal, stupid."

People don't care. They are in cars, and pedestrians don't have the right-of-way.

Where's the friendliness? Not in Dixon.

Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
