    Im surprised this hasn’t happened at FHSU. Pedestrians not using crosswalks, and walking out between vehicles and drivers not comprehending that you yield at a crosswalk

      Pedestrians have the right of way on the FHSU campus. You, as a driver, should be watching out for them!

        Alright, let’s get your panties out of a twist–my statement talked about pedestrians AND drivers. Yes, they do have the right of way. The problem arises when they walk out in front of traffic in the many blind spots on campus. The streets are narrow, making swerving an impossibility. Just because you have the right of way, doesn’t mean you need to be an idiot while crossing. Crosswalks are there for a reason–to prevent accidents. A vehicle going the posted campus speed limit still cannot stop on a dime (Reaction time + brake time).

        I understand the laws determining right of way. However, I do not understand the mentality of someone that would walk out in front of traffic with the attitude of ‘the cars better stop, because *I* have the right of way.’ It is much like the mentality of drivers who will not move over in the lane for bicyclists.

          My grandpa always told me that it didnt matter if you had the right of way if you are dead.

          there is no need to “swerve” if you going the speed limit, which IS NOT 25 MPH

          • Chris

            Where did you pull out this 25MPH figure? No one stated this number anywhere. And no need to swerve when someone walks out in front of you? Umm…k.
