City sidewalks, busy sidewalks, dressed in holiday style. Arlington is now in the midst of the yuletide season.

That means pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists all sharing the streets. Arlington does have laws in place to help everyone get to their destination safely┬ábut because some people don’t know the law, or just refuse to follow them, potential dangers can arise. After all, Arlington has seen three pedestrian fatalities along Mass Ave in recent years.

APN’s Jeff┬áBarnd talked to some pedestrians who say they walk the line. They just wish motorists would tap the brakes.
