    Roads were made for one reason,Automobiles. Before roads,Dusty trails for horses. If you're walking watch where you're going.

    Anon in Tallahassee, State employees can be pedestrians too. Pedestrian simply means that he was on foot, not driving. (a person walking along a road or in a developed area.)

    This can serve as a reminder for everyone to be more careful. Drivers and pedestrians alike. Special attention to pedestrians crossing the street properly and looking for crossers when turning right on red, especially throughout inner campuses, tennessee st,ocala rd, and capital circle TCC entrance. I admit I've had a few close calls myself from just not looking for the right away people first. A friend of mine was almost hit while crossing on his bike when a guy was looking down at his phone while driving,, the guy was clearly at fault, yet after my friend yelled at him to get off his phone, all his over macho self could was "Come say that to my face!!!" arrogance of some young adults, thinking they are smarter then their elders.

    A little caution never hurt anyone. It's not a bad idea for all users of our roads keep an eye out for approaching traffic. Share the road and slow down for those yellow/red lights.

    I happen to be a good friend and co-worker of this man and he was blowing a driveway at the capitol when the driver looked only one way up the street before going. I was there I saw him rolling in the street. I saw the compound fracture on his ankle it was completely broken. It is sad that people post comments on which they know none of the facts about the real situation.

    He was not a pedestrian he was a state employee, he was outside doing his job when he got struck by a vehicle.
