Hey if you plow someone down in midblock , you had to move out of your lane travel , kill them it is a ok by the donkey headed badges called law . Am I right or wrong here . [huh]

Agreed. How can you NOT see someone in the road too? Like it's a normal thing. Ppl just don't pay attention and don't care. And to any half block crossing haters: YES half a block makes a huge difference especially when you medical issues. I've been a pedestrian my whole life & never been hit except a close call when someone made a left into me (few mo.s ago) because she wasn't paying attention @ a 4 way stop. The problem with driving is that any crazed monkey can get a drivers license. It should be mandatory to take the written exam every 5 years... maybe that'd help.?.

and any moron can try to run across the road and cross the median, where there is no crosswalk. And they will end up on this website.

I would say no. Mid block just means not at a crosswalk.
I was coming down Bell last night, about 1/4 mile from the 101.
Its dark af between the intersections. if you are crusing along, I can see how someone standing in the road is going to get hit. you only have to be 5 steps from the sidewalk and then boom...you are in the middle of the right-most lane. Speed limit there is 45, which means most people are doing 50.

You could be right, you could be wrong. Need more data. Say there was a McDonalds on the other side of the road and car wanted to pull into it. Say street is dark. You pull into center lane and bam! hit the guy.
