It's bad news to hear of any traffic accidents, especially too pedestrian's, even more so on a crossing, being a place were people are thought to be safe crossing a road. I my own country the Uk, pedestrian's have the "right of way" being that they are most vulnerable road users, "yes" there is the highway code for road users, and the schooling of "stop listen and look", even at pedestrian crossings this practice is carried out, but here the pedestrian surely has the right of way. And yes their are accidents with road users not paying attention or following any rules or law. But it seems that here the larger you are (being the motor vehicle) has the upmost rights regardless of any common senses, in effect this will in no doubt lower the overall population.
Also where people too are more then likely in the wrong, look at the area Route National 1 between street 278 and 245, two lane traffic, but mainly Chinese restaurants line the streets. Parking as usual is not the best, and customers will walk 5 a-breast in the near-side-lane, add the on coming vehicle, coming in the wrong direction and it's a disaster just waiting to happen. I can't see this problem sorting it's self out, more so with the Chinese population growing rapidly in the area. It seems there needs to be upgrades in road management and pedestrian safe areas, also education.
Always "hope" but never "expect".
