    WRAL, if you're not going to fill in all the blanks in this story, take it down and put up something new.

    Marty, that accident has nothing to do with the socioeconomically disadvantaged. Every where not just on New Bern Ave, people don't look any more they just walk out. I see it just about every day. As far as enforcing jay walking, that will never happen. I hate driving downtown, people dart out in between cars without looking. They are either too lazy to walk to a crosswalk or in a "hurry", or they just think they are invincible.

    Maybe she was training for the dodgeball tournament in Las Vegas?

    ooo - lots of assumptions there, Marty. Where does it say the pedestrian was jay-walking or the driver was speeding, that anyone involved is "socioeconomically disadvantaged", or even that traffic laws were violated? Maybe it was an old-fashioned accident where there was a momentary lapse in attention. I do hope you're not in journalism.

    "train these socioeconomically disadvantaged to obey traffic laws"- this has NOTHING to do with "socioeconomics"- from what the article says, she WAS at the intersection where people cross the road. Seems like there are some pieces missing in this story to come to the conclussion you did about the driver OR the victims "socioeconomical disadvantages".
