    Oftentimes, pedestrians are just plain arrogant for crossing anywhere and anytime time want. I would love to see these people get hit so that they learn their lesson to cross at the pedestrian lanes.
    Bikers are worse. They want more lanes and protection yet they act like traffic rules don't apply to them. I'd like to see them get hit too!

      The moron who hit and dragged the pedestrian never stopped….which is a fact. Now, Tired of Morons, do you know something we do not know that is a fact…meaning were you there?

      As a relative of the victim I must say that the first comment was very harsh. I will pray for your ignorance. It is evident that you have no heart. Peace and Blessing be on to you. And pray that God protects you so that nothing like this will happen to you.
