Pedestrian Tales From the Middle of the Road, #59

Pedestrian Tales From the Middle of the Road, #59

 

There's been another uptick in pedestrian deaths in our area recently- no doubt owing in part to the Orlando Police Department and others' refusal to enforce our pedestrian traffic laws.

Simply put, a median strip is not a sidewalk- and when missed opportunities for enforcement (and possibly for saving lives) like the one pictured above abound, there's plenty of blame to spread around when the next pedestrian dies.

To be sure, I am a "personal responsibility" guy- and I believe the ultimate and primary fault lies with pedestrians that don't use crosswalks.  Folks with other viewpoints, however, point to the need for education partnered with enforcement- and that's fine.  But when the enforcement's not there, we have a problem, Orlando.
