Driver acted like a bully

To the editor:

Tuesday, March 18, at 2:55 p.m., I was in the crosswalk at North Fifth Avenue and North First Street, between Newton Village and Park Centre, nearing the center of First Street, when a demonstrated bully driving a Dodge pickup — after a presumed stop at North Fourth Avenue and North First Street and already over the speed limit with the foot on the gas — gave a raucous blast of the horn and blew past in front of me, going north.

This pedestrian crosswalk was plainly designated with large white rectangles on the street surface and signs facing both north and south. Did the driver know he should stop for a person crossing? Of course he did, but as I say plainly — he was a bully!
