There should be signs put up all along Sunrise Hwy warning pedestrains to cross at the Light ONLY...Yesterday during heavy rain & wind conditions - I was driving to work going West on Sunrise Hwy people were crossing the street to get to the RR & they were crossing in the middle of the road - weaving & dodging between cars to get across. First of all these are business people that are total idiots - you need to cross at the corner - these people should be given tickets for Jaywalking ...they are a menace to drivers...Its not right that we have to deal with this stupidity - as the pedestrian has the right of way... this can cause a major accident & does - something needs to be done

I am the ideal pedestrian, I do everything right, and the wicked drivers still try to run me over, even when crossing with the light! The other day a woman beeped the horn at me while I was crossing a little tiny street. She wanted me to hurry up.

Many times I have been almost run over by people who daydream while driving. Which is why I don't drive. I daydream.

hmm reading where she was hit ... i believe that particular mcdonald is at a light. i wonder why she didnt cross at the light and walked a bit to cross.. if she would of crossed at the light she wouldnt of had to jump the barrier in the middle as well. something to think about.

When I taught school, we always went over pedestrian and bus safety several times each year, one rule being to NEVER cross between cars--always at the light. Kids, listen to your teachers!

There's a traffic light at that intersection and I didn't see anything in the article mentioning she climbed the barrier. I'm guessing she crossed at the intersection but didn't wait for the light to chg? She almost did it right.

I live right by there. There is a light with a corsswalk there. Most likely she crossed at the wrong time and was jay walking. thats the only way that she would have gotten hit with the driver doing nothing wrong.

You people have no self respect. You all show how unclassy and ghetto you all are. This woman was a beautiful woman only 36 years old her life was cut short. You people will get what you deserve in life. God doesn't like ugly, and I know he will take care of everyone who made these disgusting ad horrifying statements. She was a beautiful, smart, and talented woman. She has 2 children she is leaving behind and you pigs talk like this. Hope you all burn in hell. This is from her Nephew who loved her dearly.
