When I worked in the city, I would travel the "back way" via Harford Road (then, I can't recall the names of the streets of my route). People would cross the street by waiting for cars in one direction to clear, then stand in the middle of the road until the other direction was clear (there are no turning lanes...they literally stood on the double yellow lines). This was particularly distressing when there was snow and ice on the road. These people could have easily been hit if a car hit a patch of ice and skidded to where they were standing. Of course, I slow down to practically a stand still when it is snowy or icy, but other than that, no amount of driving skills would have helped. Of course, this does not apply to the lady who was killed on Seven Courts, as there were no issues with snow/ice...since one car stopped to allow her to cross, I'm sure she was under the impression the second one would as well. But yes, I have seen the scenario which you describe many times...

agree with Jules and Waldo - even before this tragic accident, people are traveling at a very high rate of speed for a residential area. How long before something else happens?

A couple of thoughts. A tragic event thrust upon the family and friends by someone who had no consideration for the rules of law. Thank you JJ for doing the right thing in calling 911 and for the one who criticized Ms. Kimball, I suggest you read her resume and look at her credentials which are impeccable.

They should put multiple speed bumps on that road especially the last three before it runs into Joppa Road. Dang fools fly down that road but half the people in this area don't know how to drive anyway.
