Maybe these idiots should get off their phones and watch where they are going, that would eliminate a large portion of the problem.

I've had several pedestrians walk right out in front of me on purpose it's like they dare you to hit them. Some of them have even moved slower when you honk at them. One black lady stopped in front of us and started making hand gesters.

Everyone is angry and some act like they don't even want to live anymore. It's only going to get worse.

The pedestrians are distracted almost as much as drivers. Everyone needs to pay attention to what they are doing. Maybe a few that don't survive the collision will make others take note.

At least six of these deaths have to be deleted from the count because they involved drugged up idiots wandering out into 71 Highway between the stop lights. And wasn't one of them in a wheelchair?
Those aren't "pedestrian involved accidents", they're "suicide by Motor Vehicle"!

Aggressive motorists running red lights and blowing through marked crosswalks and turning right on a stop sign or red light whil barely slowing down. These things are rampant. KCPD needs to step up traffic enforcement. Can start with a few key spots downtown (and also where ther have been peds run over). East 13th off of 70. East 10th at Charlotte. And so many more.
Thanks, radish
