Is It because elderly bodies are more fragile and are harder to hit. Do the younger people get hit but thin survive.

Is what we got here are a youth and middle age centric media and government authorities...but don’t give a shit about the elderly...

How hard is this, you come up with an intense neighborhood educational campaign about sensitizing the elderly with walking and crossing the roads in the darkened winter.

Most of the roads in Brattleboro are treated like artery roads...more, the width are larger and speeds are designed to be for higher traffic loads...but most of Brattleboro roads are really capillary designed roads.

Is ir because elderly bodies are more fragile and their bodies are harder to heal. Do the younger people get hit but then survive?

It's the entitlement mentality, everyone look out for me, I'm special. White woman can do no wrong so no big deal if they run some old man over.

Only crazy people would ride a bike on public roads. Hi Mike.

I’d call the elderly “Death Zone” on Western Ave between the times of 5 pm and 9 pm in the winter,
Why don’t we see this in the summer...it called longer days? I’ll bet you the elderly even if daylight won’t be “out” past 9 pm.

If your newspaper and local government came from a scientific based society....they would get people out on Western Ave for a few weeks to a month in the timeframe between 5 pm and 19 PM to survey all the people walking along western Ave. Ask them why they are out there, age, medical issues ect...contact information...and I ‘d think about querying them later.

I put all the data of the deaths and accidents for the last ten years on a spreadsheet and put it on the internet...for the last ten years.

No, no...if you were a educationally progressive community...you’d make it a real world high school School and CCV or university project from soup to nuts with the kids. Get the kids involved in collecting the information, to putting on a community press conference on what they learned from data! Start at Western Ave and the do the town. Ask help from the educated parents. Bring in some businesses to ask them how they would solve this data problem?

That is what business America is looking for out of our kids and community?

I'd make it a living spreadsheet?
