I THINK THAT THERE WOULD BE LESS DEATHS IF THERE WERE PEDESTRIAN CROSSINGS GOING FROM BUS STOPS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE STREETS. PEOPLE OFTEN CROSS THE STREETS IN TRAFFIC TO CATCH A BUS GOING IN THE OTHER DIRECTION. ANSWER PUT CROSS WALKS IN BUS STOP TO BUS STOP !! PEOPLE DON'T WANT TO RUN DOWN TO THE CORNER WHEN THEY CAN JUST CROSS THE STREET.

Ticket the Jaywalkers! The bus stops are away from the crosswalks so the pedestrians CAN BE SEEN! Most drivers do not have xray vision to see through a bus

I agree w/you. However, I am a recent implant from Oregon.....The bicyclists are outta control. I hope OH doesnt' follow in their "bicycle" paths completely.
