Pedestrian struck: Observer & Washington

11/14/2008 Update:

Almost exactly a week after the previous incident in the exact same location – as reported on the Hoboken411 Live Police and Fire action channel – another pedestrian struck at Observer & Washington – about 4 minutes in the past.

11/7/2008 7:26pm Update:

Add another pedestrian struck. This time by a motorcycle at 7th and Willow.

11/7/2008 6:37pm:

About three minutes in the past (as overheard on the Hoboken411 Live Police and Fire action channel):

“Pedestrian struck – Observer and Washington.”

I guess the folks who want to get drunk and drive home – wanted to get a head start (and a parking spot!)

The $52 mil. bailout bond for the hospital now seems justified. 😛

There are right-of-way laws regarding crosswalks, and as a pedestrian I do not forget to remind drivers of that.[/quote]

I wait, and I can assure you, it doesn’t affect the timing of my 10 minute walk by more than a minute or too. I was being a little sarcastic about 100%, but the point is, if you value your life and want to be concerned with safety, you should wait instead of just walking. we’ve gone over the right of way laws on this board before, people think they mean more than they actually do.[/quote]

All the right of way laws mean is that the driver gets a ticket after he hits you with his car and breaks your legs. Net net, you still get sent to the hospital for being stupid.[/quote]

lol – true, true! but actually, the right of way laws put some burden on pedestrians too. a lot of people think that pedestrians just have the right to walk. there is plenty of legal speak in the nj code that gives the peds responsibility also. i think jerzgirl posted it on one thread.[/quote]

I’ve posted it enough times that I actually saved the link in “My Favorites”
