End the crosswalk problems. Catch someone failing to yield to a pedestrian, tow the car and take the driver to jail. They will have to post a bond and then appear in court. Only then will these “I’m in a hurry” drivers get the message. If that does not work, charge them with assault with a deadly weapon. This has been done with people who try to run down a police officer.

A driver who does not stop for a person in a crosswalk thinks that they are more important. They cannot be bothered by the rules of the road or the rule of law.
