Mel is an IDIOT! I've got a novel idea: pedestrian pay the fuck attention, and that's from someone who lost his mom in pedestrian vs vehicle accident. Pay attention!

Can the city install survaliance camera at busy intersections that have frequent pedestrian casulties?

I urge anyone who is walking to carry a fucking gun, blow their asses away if they try to run you over. Payback is a bitch. This is fucking stupid.

Well, if people stopped being injured and killed, that would solve the problem, wouldn't it? The real problem is that pedestrians are not really human beings to car drivers or bicycle riders; they're just nuisances. And the courts seem to agree with that assessment. Killing someone who is merely a pedestrian is a misdemeanor and punishment is community service -- not much of a deterrent is it?

It may be time to ban cars in SF. Certainly would keep people safer.
