  1. Speed is a major concern. But also, how about people USE the crosswalks instead of the middle of the street? Not easy to see people trying to cross the road when they are standing between cars. At least at crosswalks drivers are on the lookout

    15MPH? That’s ludicrous.

    • Agree. There are definitely some TERRIBLE pedestrians in this town that don’t even look before jaywalking. Who knows what the case was here today, but I wouldn’t be surprised if that is the case.

  2. On CERTIAN streets (Not all) 15 MPH is perfectly suited…i think going down a side street or a heavy pedestrian street is NOT ludicrous…IM personally sick a d tired of SOUTHIE being used a a CUT THROUGH by suburban jerks totally disrespecting the neighborhood..

  3. There would probably be less people injured if they weren’t texting while walking into traffic like I see 20 people do a day.

    • The fact that many people are stupid enough to text or talk on their cellphone(s) while walking into traffic doesn’t excuse an automobile driver going too fast and striking a pedestrian.

      People need to pay more attention to their surroundings while crossing the street, but cars need to slow down to avoid hitting these pedestrians.

      Pedestrians must be protected from their own stupidity.

    • Or texting while they’re driving like I see 30 people do a day. Put the phones down, people! You’re not that important!

      • Texting while driving has resulted in many serious injuries and deaths, not only to the testers themselves, but to innocent people who are crossing the street or whatever.

        Massachusetts should put a ban on the use of cellphones while driving.
