That crossing is a death trap -- even when all streetlights are burning
bright.Very poorly marked with warnings to drivers in advance.
Three lanes in each direction, so pedestrians may be hidden by vehicles in
adjacent lanes. Forty mile per hour speed limit. Pedestrians seem to think
they are safe because it is a marked crosswalk, so they are less careful than
they should be. Mid-block crosswalks are rather unusual and catch drivers by
surprise.I'm familiar with that crosswalk and one in the next
block, but have still had some close calls.The driver in this case
may have been completely without fault.All FOUR of the victims of
this accident -- including the driver -- should talk with lawyers about a suit
against Ogden City and / or UDOT.
