  1. Bound to happen, yesterday I watched two people walk against the lights at Strand making traffic stop for them.

  2. What is wrong with some people?
    A few days ago I saw someone crossing hwy 61 at Arthur St against the red light. There was a lot of traffic on hwy 61 during her adventure. I guess she expected cars travelling at highway speeds to hit their brakes to avoid her.

    Maybe Darwin on to something with his survival of the fittest (or smartest in this case) ideas.
