BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.VA.-Drivers traveling on U.S. 522 in the Town of Bath are being reminded to stay alert and watch for people at crosswalks who want to get across the highway.
They also are being asked to be aware of jaywalkers.
"Drivers need to be extremely cautious while driving through town," Bath Police Chief James Minton said Thursday.
Vehicle traffic on U.S. 522, the main thoroughfare through the Town of Bath, increases in the summer months with more people walking around town.
Those circumstances could lead to an accident, and the issue was discussed at Monday's Bath Town Council meeting.
The solution might be to place small crosswalk signs in the middle of the highway, Mayor Susan Webster said.
"Crosswalks need to be manned for a sting, and I'm willing to participate," Councilman David Crosby said in the meeting. Cars are not stopping and people could be struck, he said.
