Yes, crossing the street is not that complicated. But, according to this article, maybe a couple of overhead cross walks would minimize the threat of lawsuits (because of course, it's the governments fault that someone stepped out in front of a vehicle doing 60mph) and be way cheaper than building the interchanges mentioned.

Wrong answer. I have seen many STUPID, PALSY, RETARDED, individuals running across the lanes in this area, and this is what I have to say:

ALL of them were NOT crossing at intersections, which is the SAFEST PLACE to cross a BUSY HIGHWAY.

They were trying dodge HIGH-SPEED traffic between stoplight intersections, a practice that is SO STUPID, it defies any amount of LOGIC. A lot of them probably do so even at NIGHT, which makes it even more deadly.

These aren't 7 or 8 year olds, these are senior teens or adults, who should KNOW BETTER. So NOW, you want to spend MILLIONS OF DOLLARS for highway overpasses because these ADULTS, or near adults, aren't smart enough to cross a busy, high-speed highway, at a STOPLIGHT, because they might have to walk a couple of hundred extra yards to safely cross such a highway?
