No common sense in Oklahoma.  What's our education ranking at, again?  Maybe if we were to break into the mid 30s, we wouldn't need the signs

Problem is, aren't we now assuming that they can actually read the signs?  Tongue

Minor point but I have a Bimmer.

Beemer = 2 wheel motorcycle from BMW
Bimmer = 4 wheel automobile from BMW

Per info from BMW Car Club of America.

Beemer and Beezer are from motorcycles of BMW and BSA.

I believe the law is for drivers to stop for pedestrians in/on the crosswalk.  No need for the drivers to stop if you are still up on the sidewalk.  Step off the sidewalk onto the crosswalk and I believe you get the right to continue.  Just don't be dead right. 

Motorists must yield for pedestrians regardless of where they cross, but some of the blame shifts to pedestrians hit while not in crosswalks.


Last night:

Tulsa police say an officer drove up on a body near Admiral and North Sheridan Road just before 10 p.m. Friday. The victim was taken to a hospital where he later died.

Early in the investigation, police say a man approached the officers and told them he was the driver that hit the pedestrian. That man is an off-duty Osage Tribal Police officer who told police he wasn't sure he'd hit anything but came back to the scene to make sure, authorities say.

The area was dark, and the pedestrian had not been in a crosswalk, according to Tulsa police. Police have not made any arrests in this incident.

The victim is an unknown, homeless man, records show.

They need signs in the middle strip that say STOP FOR PEDESTRIANS.

Some flowers and more trees would be great. The lighting at night needs major improvements. I can't tell you how many times people have walked out in front of me that I never saw because the lighting is so terrible. Thankfully I drive much slower through there at night because of that. I don't know how someone hasn't been seriously hurt yet.

Traffic calming is important... they could use some small center medians with plantings (similar to Brookside) to help slow traffic down, and make pedestrians feel safer crossing the street. 

Um, someone was killed crossing Cherry St two years ago.

They must not know about the bonus points.
1 point for every pedestrian,  2 points for a bicyclist.
First driver to 100 points wins.

I knew I would manage to mangle that.  I’ll correct the next BMW rider who refers to his two-wheeled steed as a “Bimmer”  Grin
