A pedestrian in west San Jose became casualty number 40 last night. I know the intersection of Williams and Boynton very well and ride my bike past that intersection often. The guy was apparently jaywalking, but there are apartments on three corners and a city park on the third so pedestrian traffic is always heavy at this intersection.
Automobile deaths are outnumbering other homicides, which is at a 10 year high with 35 homicides so far in 2007.
Peace on earth and goodwill to all, everybody!
