    Being a pedestrian in Newton is tantamount to having a death wish. Today I was nearly run down by a person backing out of his driveway onto Beacon Street. Had it not been for the sudden blare of multiple car horns trying to warn him, it might not have been “nearly.” Newton Centre is an absolute mess and the blame falls as much on jaywalkers as to speeding cars with texting drivers. Why are there no traffic police here? Why not empower the parking meter monitors to ticket jaywalkers, cars that ignore pedestrian crosswalks and, most terrifying of all, the speeders. I walk to and from work in Newton Centre. These are the most harrowing 15 minutes of my day.
