Saturday night dangerous for Vancouver pedestrians
Yah? Well, don't forget Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Seven pedestrians were struck by vehicles yesterday.
I'm surprised it wasn't 70.
As all good ghost stories begin, "It was a dark and rainy night..."
Hey, kids, it's been a dark and rainy night every night for the past two months.
Everybody, including me, is in our winter blacks. We are basically invisible.
Which makes it really disconcerting that idiots are crossing in the middle of streets all over the place.
And of course people are relentlessly speeding. Racing. And that's just in the Safeway parking lot.
Flying through crosswalks and past school zones.
Consider us lucky.
