In the episode, Evangelous talked about everything traffic-related in Wilmington, including the streets with the most deadly crashes.

He addresses the recent accidents on Market Street, Oleander Drive and Carolina Beach Road.

Evangelous has some advice for drivers, pedestrians and cyclists.

“First of all, don’t use any impairing substance,” Evangelous said. “Don’t wear dark clothes especially at night. Look before you step off. Make eye contact with the driver of the car before you step into the road if you possibly can. Stay off the phones. Pay attention to what you’re primary focus is out their and use cross walks.”
