Spokane pedestrians can travel for blocks and blocks without finding a safe crosswalk to use. At night, they face the added threat of poorly lit intersections.
Drivers who should be paying extra attention to monitor for pedestrians can ignore their duty to show extra care around anyone on foot. They can strike a defenseless pedestrian to cause traumatic injuries and even cause life-threatening wounds.
