  1. I wish for the very best and fast recovery for this pedestrian! Hope she will be able to recover from her injuries.

    I walk everyday in Green Valley, Henderson, near the Arroyo Grande Sports Complex. You have to be alert. Drivers, YOU ARE TO YIELD TO ALL PEDESTRIANS IN A CROSSWALK. PERIOD. Too many close calls as I cross Arroyo Grande at Santiago twice each 3 mile walk I take. I always have a very good camera phone set to take license plates in my pocket. Most of us walk for good healthy exercise. Hard to stay healthy when drivers are not watching for folks in the crosswalks.

  2. Mark, it's a sad state of affairs when on a leisurely walk you're prepared to take photos of license plates to help identify dangerous drivers...

  3. Much of the blame for LV having so many "cowboys" driving on our roadways goes to the lax enforcement of traffic laws. Without a doubt, everyone who drives in this valley reading this post knows exactly what I mean. Tailgating, speeding, illegal lane changes, driving drunk; you name it and and we are subjected to those who somehow believe it's their right to do it and the rest of us be damned! The attitude extends to vehicles with out-of-state license plates, as well. And, why not? They see our crazy drivers ignoring just about every traffic law on the books and believe it's a free-for-all on the streets. And, they are pretty much correct. The judges are far too lenient on those who endanger the rest of us with their recklessness, knocking speeding tickets down to parking tickets so as not to alert insurance companies just how much a liability some of their insured actually are. And those given such breaks believe it gives them a license to continue on their merry ways. I don't know about you, but I never feel safe on LV roadways. And driving in this city? It's no pleasure.

    I agree about being prepared, I have a dash cam on my car because I drive 77 miles each way to work and you can't begain to believe what I encounter daily.
    Words to LIVE by " It's better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it" Wouldn't you agree?
