  1. Fascinating the “Governors Highway Safety Association” finds that it’s the fault of people walking, not people driving. This feels like AASHTO still saying crosswalks are unsafe because they lead to people crossing the street.

    Aren’t there a ton of studies that have concluded people driving while on the phone or distracted with all the new car gizmos is equivalent or worse than driving drunk? And aren’t car crashes on the rise as well?
