Nashville High School Student Killed by Tractor Trailor in Nashville - Dec 19, 2013

This is a heartbreaking story of 17 year old girl who was killed in Nashville on Thursday, December 19th, while walking through a crosswalk mid-day on a clear sunny afternoon…

From Walk/Bike Nashville and very well said:

As motorists, we must accept our legal and moral duty to cede

 right of way to pedestrians and other vulnerable road users.

 About this issue State Law is unequivocal.

  • Failure to yield to a pedestrian within a marked crosswalk is a violation of Tennessee State law.

  • Even when motorists turn with a green light, pedestrians crossing with the light have the right of way.

  • If no marked crosswalk exists, pedestrians passing through uncontrolled intersections still have the right of way.
