  1. i dont feel bad for these people because crosswalks are made for a reason.

  2. In the first week of the new year how many people have been killed in Vegas and the greater metro area? This is insane.

  3. refman55 says "There are NO crosswalks within several blocks of that intersection. In fact, I don't know of any crosswalks within a 1 mile radius of that intersection."

    Don't know what kind of map you are using, but the marked crosswalk at Dean Martin is 0.55 miles away and the marked crosswalk at Deactur is 0.63 miles away. So there's two marked crosswalks within 1 mile of Hinson.
