It is an ongoing saga. People think they have the right of way. Maybe they do, but a mistake can be fatal. The pedestrian injury and death count continues to rise nationwide and Baltimore is no exception. At last count our fair city ranked 28th in the nation in this category. In the last 7 years fatalities have been steadily on the rise.
Many of the deceased pedestrians nationwide were subsequently declared legally drunk. Let’s look at the laws of physics. 45 miles per hour equals 66 feet of travel per second. This does not even factor in the time that it takes for a human to react on both ends. Those ends being “getting out of the way” and the time it takes to apply the brakes.
