I've lived and walked around Dundas my entire life. For those of you who don't know the area, there are crosswalks at almost every block. I feel like the real issue here is following the PEDESTRIAN RULES OF THE ROAD. These are things that we have been taught at a very young age. Why jaywalk across the road, at night, in a dimly lit area, when there is a cross walk steps away from where the incident happened. If these pedestrian rules are not followed, of course there are going to be more accidents involving vehicles and human bodies. Sure, lower the speed limit more, add speed bumps.. but if people who walk around this area don't also follow these rules, then all of this will be pointless. Even if the cars are going slower, and the chances of fatally are lower in the chance that pedestrian is hit, the bigger issue is PEDESTRIANS STILL RUN THE RISK OF GETTING HIT IF THEY TOO DONT FOLLOW THE RULES. I feel for the family who lost their son, absolutely. But I also know the driver of the car, who was not driving recklessly and will have to live with this accident for the rest of his life.
