NM launches campaign to improve pedestrian safety
#1 Oct 29, 2011
It seems like every time I watch the Alb. evening news they are reporting about someone getting run over. I believe there are many reasons why this is happening in NM. Noticed that most of the accidents reported on happen at night. I believe a lot of these accidents occur because of poor visibility at night due to the fact that there are not enough street lights; some streets have no street lights. Even the busiest streets don't have enough lighting; some streets have no crosswalks painted on the streets; some people are getting intoxicated either walking home or driving home and cause these accidents, and also people speeding and not driving the speed limit. Lately the occurrences of drivers not focusing because they are texting. I believe putting up more street lights could drastically reduce the number of pedestrian accidents at night.

As well as the pedestrian taking responsibility to watch out for cars and waiting for traffic signals that give pedestrians the right of way plus avoid jay walking would help also.
