    Sounds a lot like finger pointing at the victim rather than the driver. Don’t make it so one sided until a full investigation is concluded.

    I can not believe how many people cross the roads at night in the rain wearing dark clothes and not in the crosswalk. I work eveings and have had to hit my brakes so many times because of stupid people.

Then again maybe you would be the drunk wearing dark clothes, crossing on a Don’t cross
