I beg to differ...it does have to do with my analogy. It is the law for children to wear a helmet. He wasn't wearing one. Drivers are accountable to follow the rules of the road, just as cyclists, pedestrian, skateboarders etc.
He was riding his bike on the sidewalk. Need I go on? Digression or not...even with safety precautions, accidents will happen. Every single traffic fatality in this City doesn't demonstrate some type of failure of the system. I had a close call that could have happened to anyone and I was using it to ilustrate the very nature of the word 'accident'. The streets surrounding Heritage Green, the intersection at Nash and Queenston, Upper James and Mohawk.... are not at all pedistrian friendly. Is there a liklihood of the entire City being re-engineered to be safer? No. If we fix one area 'high collision areas' will still exist elsewhere.
