That spec quote ticked me off too. It implies that this latest victim was at fault even though they admit that they don't know where she was crossing and it's still under investigation. Pedestrians - guilty until proven innocent.

Ryan, two-way conversions, narrower lanes, etc. are all good and necessary, but you left out a quicker, cheaper fix that could be applied in the short term. I've been house hunting with my sister in my old neighbourhood in Toronto and I'm amazed at all the speed bumps that have gone up. Most residential streets in the Annex/Seaton Village neighbourhoods seem to have them, not to mention on-street parking on both sides. Slows traffic to a crawl. It would be the perfect solution for a street like Jackson, but can't you just hear the howling?
