Editorial: Pedestrians can aid their own cause: Pay attention

Another pedestrian has been hit on Macon-Bibb County streets and killed. Timothy Walker became the third pedestrian hit and killed this year while seven others have been hit and survived. In 2013 there were nine pedestrian fatalities. People are rubbing their foreheads seeking an elusive solution. The fact that many of our roads have no sidewalks and there are large stretches of road without a crosswalk and virtually no bike lanes get some of the blame. Our roads are an accident waiting to happen and the wait hasn’t been long. On Pio Nono, three people, in two incidents, were hit in a span of 40 minutes.
