    There’s very heavy traffic in the entire metro area, EVERYONE should be paying absolutle attention to their driving. There was a seriously injured pedestrian on Fayette street, struck by a car in October 2008. He had 2 broken legs, lost all movement in one arm permanently for the rest of his life, he had a concussion, fractured eye socket, fractured jaw, broken nose, glass in his face, need I say more? He’ll be out of work for at least a year and needs painful physical therapy 3 times a week, still! Now this is February. He served 20 years in the Army and National Guard before that. I think all drivers should know that if you strike a person going over 40 mph, there’s an 85% chance they will DIE. Driving is NOT a game, not recreation, it requires your ABSOLUTE concentration, your life, and your passengers, and pedestrians all depend upon YOUR concentration. If you want to talk on the phone, pull over.

    More…the speed limit in Conshohocken was lowered to 25 mph in October 2007, a full year before my friend was hit near 8th & Fayette in October 2008 by a car going at least 40, probably faster. What are the cops doing? The police station is ON 8th & Fayette. No excuse for not ENFORCING the speed limit, just plopping up signs isn’t enforcement, they need cops out there handing out tickets because MOST vehicles are going faster than the speed limit, NO EXCUSE…there are TRAFFIC LIGHTS EVERY 3 BLOCKS in Conshohocken, no driver has any reason to go that fast in that short distance between lights.

    Talking on a cell phone is almost like driving while intoxicated. I’ve SEEN people driving crummy on empty streets while talking on the phone, making wobbly wide turns with one hand, etc. Now my friend who got hit has only one arm to use, maybe he’ll decide to drive one day while YOU’RE crossing the street, maybe he’ll have a phone in his good hand, too.
