    So is it a kids/teenager issue or is it magically limited to kids and teens on that road? Your post makes no sense.

    Nowadays kids and teenagers refuse to acknowledge the fact a car can kill you. They continue to stroll across the roads with a " I wish you would hit me" attitude. I hope this is not the case but I doubt it. That is why I avoid this road when i have to travel.
