    Drivers should slow down at intersections. Maybe a child will run into the road. What ever happened to having control of your vehicle?

    Terry, what ever happened to pedestrians respecting the law? You are right, drivers mst always be aware of their surroundings. But this driver had a green light in his favour (the pedestrian crossed on a red light as per the story), so why must he sow down as you state? He must only oey the speed limit

    what happen to holding the hand of your child and taking responsible. Drivers are not always at fault the man was crossing the street on a red light.

    It was Decarie boulevard, so even if he was going the speed limit, it would have been too fast to slow down for someone jaywalking at night.

    While I never like anyone getting hit, I can't say I am sorry that he got hit.

    Here are some simple facts as a driver in Québec, everywhere I turn there are jaywalkers who can't be bothered sometimes to walk 100 meters to a stop sign. Instead they cross where they please, and expect the motorists to react.

    Well maybe this old man getting hit will be a wake up call to him, his family, and his friends. STOP JAY WALKING AND YOU WON'T GET HIT!

    For whatever reason the pedestrian is not respecting the traffic signal, is it okay to hit the pedestrian?
