Elgin,

Did you even read the descriptions of the collisions?

  1. Lady went out to get her mail

  2. Gore Park and James intersection while bus turning (slow speed, there is a crosswalk there)

  3. Occured in a parking lot

  4. Family car in driveway

  5. Cyclist on James (details unclear)

  6. Person slipped under a truck

  7. Person walking along a main street in the country

  8. Cyclist on two way street

  9. Slow moving 2 way street with a cross walk within a maximum of(most likely less than) 100m

  10. Country road, impaired driver

  11. one way/two way intersection with crosswalks.

Based on the above, how you can come to the conclusion that a lack of crosswalks and "mazes" of parking lots is killing our elders is beyond me. If anything, it says the opposite of that. It would be ridiculous to do so, but if one wanted to try to draw a conclusion from the above data, it would seem that crosswalks, driveways, parking lots, public transit and going out to get your mail are the problem. Obviously that isn't the problem, but I'm just trying to point out how far fetched it is for you to suggest the conclusion that you came up with based on the data provided.
