There’s been another pedestrian killed by a car. And this time it was a police officer that hit and killed the person walking. The Spokesman-Review has the details.
The Spokane Regional Health District is launching a campaign to increase safety between cars and bicycles and cars and pedestrians. Last week they had asked us to make a series of maps showing the locations and numbers of accidents involving cars and bicyclists or walkers, plus how severe the collision was. We were kind of surprised at the sheer numbers after looking at the results, and the numbers don’t even go through 2010, when there were several accidents. Here’s a link to those maps. Check out the downtown area. It looks like someone spilled paint on it.
