They should hire the Missing Persons to do a PSA

Walkin' in LA
Walkin' in LA, walk smart when you’re walking in L.A

In seven of the 10 fatal pedestrian collision deaths between Jan. 1 and April 21 in the San Fernando Valley, pedestrians themselves were at fault, according to data cited by Capt. Andy Neiman of LAPD’s Valley Traffic Division.

The pedestrians were outside of a crosswalk, walking illegally in the roadway or not crossing corner-to-corner, Neiman said. For example: On Jan. 29, 62-year-old Maria Hernandez was fatally struck by a Mercedes while crossing mid-block near Tampa Avenue and Victory Boulevard in Reseda – outside the crosswalk, Neiman said.

Contributing to the problem: Distracted walking has become as much of a problem as distracted driving, Neiman said. “Many times, their heads are down, looking at their phones, texting, talking on the phone, not paying attention,” Neiman said. “All the same behaviors we see by drivers.”

LOL! If they can get somebody who looks as did Dale Bozzio did in the 80's, I'll listen.

So natural selection is helping solve our housing shortage. Win-win.
