    I am sorry the person was injured, but one of the reasons I hate going into San Francisco is the fact that so many people walk across the streets without even looking first.
    They cross during green lights, the cross after lights change. Generally they are extremely irritating and I get angry since the police don’t do anything about it.
    Start ticketing the people with LARGE fines!!!
