Also the first friend I knew that died on his motorcycle... Dorrian, Pennsylvania Ave SE DC year 2002, age 33.

I can stay up all night looking up close to a dozen people i know who died on there motorcycles.

I almost made this list Monday morning.

That purple runs like blood in the country...Im surprised the west coast dont have more. Then again the east coast have a higher concentration of people.

In DC the tops killers are...

Cars
Pedestrians
Motorcycles

deaths from cars and pedestrians are so damn close....now that is shocking.

I wonder if scooter is considered other?

I want to check on 211.

A large part of the pedestrian deaths come from hispanics in the area. They cross the streets from all over the place and walk into on coming traffic. I only assume that in there countries it isnt as organized and cars stop more. They report a few years ago said that hispanics account for something like 12% or less of the population, but 90% of the pedestrian deaths/accidents.

They highlighted or changed the law in DC (or raised the fine) for not stoping for pedestrians in crosswalks. They also posted all those signs.

I will go on the record and say that shit makes me mad. When I was a kid in DC all the schools taught you how to cross the streets...instilled that you must look both ways and all that crap. Now... we are focusing more on the driver (who already have a ton of shit to watch out for) to just stop when you see people. To me that makes people think again that "Oh I can just keep chating on my cell and walk out in the middle of the street...cars will stop"

anyway.

I could believe it, seems like many Hispanic immigrants don't have personal vehicles.

The Fairfax Connector busses used to have signs about crossing the street. The one in English said, "Wait for the bus to leave before crossing." The Spanish one said, "Look both ways before crossing."
