Nimitz Highway is so wide, it takes two cycles of the walk light to complete. By the time you reach the median strip the walk light flashes a red don't walk. Yet I see many who ignore.

According to this article, the woman walked into oncoming traffic. Cars are traveling @ the speed limit of 35mph, which amounts to over 51 feet per second. If a person steps off the curb 25 feet in front of you and you have a half-second reaction time, your car will hit the woman before you even begin to brake. As you should know, cars don't come to a complete stop the instant you hit the brakes. In this case, blame should go to the woman who stepped into oncoming traffic. No one knows for sure, since we weren't there to witness the accident.

How do you know the cars are travelling at the speed limit of 35mph? I very seldom see people driving at or less than the speed limit.
