Another pedestrian struck in Halifax

On the same day, Halifax Regional Police launched a safety initiative aimed at curbing the number of pedestrian collisions, another pedestrian was hit.

Police say a woman was struck just before 10 p.m. while in the crosswalk on Quinpool Road near Harvard Street.

The 23-year-old was knocked to the ground, but wasn’t hurt.

Police issued the 66-year-old driver of the car a ticket for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.

    It’s not always the driver. So many pedestrians jump out in a crosswalk with out looking.

      This is true, the issue is double sided enough without people adding in different problems. I see no reason why retesting shouldn’t become mandatory after a certain age (or other complications that may affect driving) but it’s not necessarily the issue here.

It’s time to have mandatory retesting over the age of 60. Too many wreckless seniors on the roads who are unaware of their surroundings.
