On January 27, 1995, I was in an Auto/Pedestrian accident on 3300 South 300 East. As a result of the accident I received a Traumatic Brain Injury and Pelvic Fracture. A lot of Motorist Refuse to Slow Down for Pedestrians. I have almost been hit again by Motorists Several Times Since my Accident.

In the last 15 year since my Accident Pedestrian Safety and our Bus System is even Worse. There more Traffic Grid Lock and road rage. The Accident that have been March 11, 2010, with the Trax Train with more Trax Line coming those kind Accidents going be have been even more and also Increase in Auto/Pedestrian Accidents.
