    Way too many people walk on the wrong side of the road and do not wear reflective or light colored clothes when walking after dusk. They just don't seem to care if they might get hit. Cars stay right and you walk on the left facing traffic. You don't walk on the right with the flow of traffic. You are supposed to be looking at what is coming your way.

    Ok, it's wrong to leave the scene of an accident, but this seems to have been an accident looking for a place to happen. A 16-year-old girl from Raleigh, walking IN (according to the article) the road, in Garner, at 9:30 at night. Something's not right with this picture.
