IBNNews have this story on a Austrian woman being hit and killed by a car crossing Commonwealth Ave on the weekend. Its prompted the obvious knee jerk reaction that the city is not safe for pedestrians. I guess the pedestrian lights that are only put up for Floriade fool people into thinking they can cross there??

The bastion of all things fine in this nation, The Macquarie News Group (vis their website livenews.com.au) is reporting here that a 68-year-old woman was on a pedestrian crossing on Commonwealth Avenue near Parliament House when she was struck about 6.30 last night.
Thats the 11th fatality this year kiddies.
