  1. Why hasn't the media stopped things like this from happening. TV stations keep saying they are out there to protect people, especially people being hit by cars.

    This is sad and tragic, but I thought the media said they would protect us.

  2. Where were the girl's parents?

  3. Ive been informed in that area this road formation is called quarter sac not cul-de-sac

  4. There are way too many people who drive too fast through residential areas. Personally I want to get through life without hitting a child with my car so I take it easy and stay aware when driving in residential areas.
