Grand Avenue is a very dangerous road, there is no street lighting, the road lanes are unmarked and people drive way to fast. Pedestrians cross randomly all up and down Grand in the dark with black hoodies over their heads and you can barely see them, the County needs to install some very much needed street lights on this road. The commuters from Murrieta and Temecula need to slow down when using this road and in spite of what they think the left hand turn lane is not for passing.

Lets waste more money on ignorant people. Why not put in pedestrian bridges at a cost of many millions of dollars each so they can ignore them and cross where ever they want to anyway. The only thing lights would do is allow you to see the dummies just before they step out in front of you. As for catching the jack-a** that hit this person, seems no one was paying enough attention to even get a description of the vehicle.

We need to protect illegal illegal jay walkers from getting run down by illegals with no licenses, etc..
