Delay crosswalk & benefit a consultant

If the Manteca City Council would just do it, already, they could probably install a crosswalk across Woodward Avenue within a short time frame.

Spending the money and time on a consultant will only result in a delayed construction time and a more expensive price tag (prices are going up everywhere), and possibly an accident/fatality. Of course, a crosswalk is no guarantee that there won’t be an accident, but at least it will provide greater awareness to drivers. And, pedestrians still need to watch for cars. If the community finds the crosswalk is inadequate, it can always be enhanced at a later date.

Seems to me, the only one who benefits here is the consultant.
