First off, common sense is to walk on the left side of the road! My husband was walking alongside the road on the left. He wasn't in the street to even have a reason (eg. "to stand in, walk on, or bicycle along") to move out of harms way. He was facing on-coming traffic. Maybe you should re-read the article because somewhere you are way off. We were about to walk and not returning from a walk. You are right, we do need to "teach our children safety lessons", especially when you have people who, even though both lanes are empty, manages to hit TWO innocent people and kills one. Reality is, a life is lost and we (his family) is suffering.
