  1. Harrison and Broadway no surprise people just cross the street and don’t realize that this isn’t a pedestrianization thoroughfare. Everyone crosses right there on cell phones or ear phones in that blinking red hand doesn’t exist for some reason there. I’m surprised there haven’t been more.

  2. Whoa… you can still be in the crosswalk with the blinking red hand. The burden here is on drivers. I’m surprised there aren’t more drivers penalized for reckless driving.

    • WHOA… you can NOT step off the curb while the light is flashing. The flashing hand and timer is NOT an invitation to bounce across the road. If you do, you not only deserve the ticket SPD occasionally hands out, but you take a hell of a chance on getting flattened.

      Nowhere does this brief story say the hand was white or flashing. People have a habit of thinking they can walk whenever they damn well please up on Broadway. I’m just glad nobody’s been killed recently.

      • Thank you for pointing out what is illegal, e.g. entering a crosswalk after the red hand has displayed. If you do, you are not only risking injury from cars that are turning off the perpendicular street, but you are impeding said cars from turning and in doing so easing traffic flow and congestion.

      • It is not illegal to walk while the hand is flashing, you are just not supposed to enter while the hand is flashing, like a yellow light… Everyone needs to pay closer attention to each other, drivers and pedestrians alike.

  3. Drivers need to slow the f down and pay attention. I’ve seen several near-hits in just the past few weeks. I’ve had several drivers come within a foot or two of me, while I was in the crosswalk, while the walk signal was still visible. No excuses,

  4. Thank You to all the fools who tell Detroiters & Thugs from baltimore etc how great it is out here in Seattle. Extra love to the idiots who thought legalizing pot would cut down on the criminals who are attached to the drug trade. Thank you all so very much for completely RUINING Seattle. Yep, I went “back east” to college, realized the whole place was a ceccpool of filthy & crime and general bad behavior and came Back to the West to a decent place to live 26 years ago. Now Seattle is just like the sh*#hole the whole Est coast has always been. GO AWAY

  5. The surest way to ruin your day is to read the Cap Hill Blog crime blotter. I used to read these regularly and get pissed off every time. My wife told me I should stop reading them altogether. I decided to read them only occasionally and now find myself less irritated with the neighborhood. Ah, sweet blissful ignorance…

  6. Although true of alot of people on Broadway, this crosswalk discussion is irrelevant here. The pedestrian wasn’t hit in the intersection. They were hit by a car leaving the parking garage of the QFC.
