"What's your opionion of the D.C. Transportation Department's new regulation that will soon permit motorists to make right turns at specified red traffic signals in the District?" Staffwriter Carol Krucoff and photographer Michael Ford Parks went to McPherson Square to ask city residents their views. Kathie Chappell, 22, Columbia Road and Connecticut Avenue NW: 'I think it's a good idea, but they should have it all lights. So many people from Virginia and Maryland come into the District and turn right on red without thinking anyway. John E. Paraskevas, 59, Georgia and Alaska Avenues NW: "It's dangerous for the pedestrian. If an automobile has the right to turn on red and a pedestrian is trying to cross, you've got a dead pedestrian." David BLunt, 20, 16th and Newton Streets NE: "It all depends on your point of view. If the cars can turn right on red the pedestrians won't have time to get across the street. But from the driver's point of view it'll be good, especially when traffic is congested. Sherrill Nettles, 22, 4th and G Streets SW: "I don't think that the law should be changed. Motorists don't give pedestrians the right of way as it is, and with the new law pedestrians will be more abused than they are now." Charlottee Cropp, 24, East Capitol Street and Benning Road NE: "I think it's a good idea. It saves time, energy and gas." Courtney Diggs, 22, 47th and East Capitol Streets SE: "I think it's a pretty good idea as long they wait for pedestrians to cross. It should have been enforced a long time ago."; Michael Shumpert, 19, Kennilworth Avenue and Anderson Road NE: "It'd be real nice as a driver. People wont't be in such a rush to turn before the light changes if they know they can turn on red."
