The only reason rt. 130 is dangerous for pedestrians is because they walk out on the highway.
I don't know why people feel they have to walk a crossed a 6 lane highway. It is the worst in Camden, Willingboro, Burlington City and Trenton. I almost hit a guy at night in the rain a few years back. Didn't see the fool until he was just off my right fender. It must be an inner city thing walking in front of traffic. That or shear stupidity.

I've never had a problem with pedestrians on the road. I can't speak for other towns but around willingboro there's a lot on Rt 130 that is within walking distance of most residents. I know a lot of people walk from both sides of the highway on their way to the buys stop near they library. I've never had anyone run out in front of me though, at least not on that road. To duo that, one would have to be either out of his mind, or have a death wish. I have, however, had some problems with other drivers cutting me off, riding my tail, not signaling lane changes at all, and myself being trapped in one lane during higher traffic hours because despite having signaled to change lanes for several minutes none seem to have the time or courtesy to let me into the lane... I've missed many turns that way...
