Here's a link to a story about pedestrian deaths in DC.
I liked this part:
Linden attributes the number of fatalities in part to a growth in pedestrian activity. "We're becoming a walking city much more than we were in the 1970s," Linden said. "A lot of people today view owning an automobile as an unnecessary appendage."
I didn't like this part:
"The driver of the vehicle was identified as Laurence Panton, a District resident. No charges have been filed, but the case is being investigated by the D.C. police's major crash investigation unit, said Officer Kenny Bryson, a police spokesman. "
If you kill someone any other way you get locked up, but use a car to kill a pedestrian and they try to find a way to blame the pedestrian.
