Normally pedestrians rule in school settings, but at Purdue it is the cars. Cars love freshman, many more accidents than reported here, just no one got really hurt.
There is no cross walk from Student UNION to parking garage. There is no Cross Walk from Hawkins to POE. NO Cross Walk from Union bus stop to Krannart. Surely more unsafe areas for pedistrians on a college campus!
NO Speed bumps......Nothing to slow traffic down like speed bumps or cross walks. Or progams to change driving habits like handing out LOTS of speeding tickets.
The problem will take a lot more than have college students go back to first grade complete with crossing guards. CARS speed thru campus and do not stop for pedestrians. It is time for walkers to take the campus back! Purdue stopped smoking on campus but still allows road side bombs!
