Thanks for yourcmment. Yes I am a pro transportation consultant and safety is part of myjob. What ticks me off it eh amount of money we spend to make things safe fro pedestriansa and cyclists only to have them do their own thing. We recently impproved a roadwy here in Tamp by adding medians and mid-block crossings with flashers. The blocks are not that long and it is only about 100-150 feet at most between the mid block crossing and the intersections. I was on it the other day and a woman was pushing a baby stroller with one hand and had a 2-3 year old in the other and she was cross less than 50 ft from the mid block cross walk. I guess stupid is as stupid does.
