Maybe she got struck because the school zones were not on this morning! I hope that girl is okay.

That, and the driver was probably going to be late for work. No excuse.

I agree with you Harold, but I called a nonemergency number this morning after noticing all the school zones were off and was told that this was a traffic issue.

I see your stupidity continues. Did you look up the definition of stupidity in the dictionary yet? It truly has your name as the definition.

I almost got hit by a cop a week or two ago crossing the street. This city just isn't safe for pedestrians. It's a horrible city to walk absolutely anywhere.
Slow down

I hope the girl is ok and I'll be praying for her. IN the early nineties a cheerleader got hit crossing McCrae to Eastwood. Also a mother of an Eastwood student was killed by a young hit-and-run driver after a football game crossing Montwood towards Eastwood's new gym. I heard the cheerleader practically ran in front of cars, but the mom was hit by a careless speeding driver. The driving seems the same in that area but the pedestrians seem to have gotten more and more unwise and DUMB. I don't know who the driver was but so many of those kids from Eastwood walk with self-absorbed blinders on because they think drivers are so taken by their imaginary great looks. The students aren't really paying attention while walking in those areas instead they are desperately looking around to see who is glancing in their direction because they like to think they are so cute as oppose to the cars driving around them. Many drivers are making sure if there are any pedestrians around because many just walk in front of cars like they are begging to get hit. Drivers be cautious and slow down but Eastwood pedestrians need to be more careful too.

I drive by Eastwood every morning on my way to work. and not once but several times have been going through the school zone and other cars pass me in a no passing zone, unfortunately it is adults doing this not the kids(probably in a hurry). I dont know what the police are doing or thinking about while they are there but I see nothing being done about it. I also saw this in the school zone at Scotsdale Elementry and Eastwood Knolls. We need everyone's cooperation including the kids ,drivers and police.

I do agree that people can't drive in El
Paso but pedestrians need to learn to respect cars and become smarter while walking. Don't automatically think the car is going to stop
