  1. I was driving on Rt. 1 two days ago and saw a man dart between the cars to cross the highway.

  2. Another one? Genuinely sad, but what’s with all the pedestrian fatalities on Route 1 lately? Who walks on Route 1? People on their way to swim at Niagara Falls?

  3. Truly sad, considering that crossing Route 1 from the Square Mall might be much safer by walking a few hundred feet further across the Meadow Road overpass.
