Some advice for pedestrians:
1) Wear light colored clothing.
2) Look both ways before crossing the street.
3) Use a crosswalk.
4) Use a safety light (or use your cell phone as a flashlight) to make yourself visible to vehicles.

All too many pedestrians dress in dark colored clothing, and simply walk out into the street as if there are never any cars there.

We cannot put in a law that would make stupidity illegal. Pedestrians in Halifax get hit because they are stupid. Or maybe there is a psychotronic beam from Russia aimed at Halifax permanently which makes people behave like lemmings……..
