No, it’s not safe to cross any busy street in Fall River, even in a crosswalk. I was standing in the walk on Pleasant st about 10 days ago, & a Punk,(with the requisite punkettes along for the ride) in his shiny BMW, actually sped up to intimidate me. What the little a****** didn’t know, was that I ALWAYS carry my automatic “hole puncher” with me. He’s fortunate that he didn’t hurt my wife or I, as he likely would have had a problem.
