I'm catching myself to think about present simple or present continues when I'm constructing sentences like this one (it happened again) and I'm getting more and more confused. What do you folks think is the correct way to write this sentence:
Being able to help people to feel safe when they are crossing the streets makes me happy.
Being able to help people to feel safe when they cross the streets makes me happy.
In my opinion, they are both correct, although I lean towards the second sentence in terms of correctness.
Many thanks, Peter
