Two pedestrians hit by vehicle on Milledge Avenue

@bobbidiboo: I understand his car smelled like "Pot Ash" no wonder he refused the blood test.

Two pedestrians hit by vehicle on Milledge Avenue

“Jaywalking” is not a legal term and does not appear in the Georgia Code. Even so, people often use “jaywalking” to describe a pedestrian crossing outside of a crosswalk. In fact, crossing the street outside of a crosswalk is perfectly LEGAL in most places, as long as the pedestrians yield to traffic. These images illustrate the law.

……..……..

I am sorry the images did not come thru on the copy & paste, but the above comes from the Georgia Law... look it up. The girls were not in the wrong.. As far as being TOO YOUNG to be in the area at around 5 pm, there are alot of homes on the streets off of milledge not to mention the High School is right there. They will be entering college in about 8 months and had every right to be there. The young man on the other hand had no right to be behind the wheel of that car in the first place. As someone else said the speed he had to be traveling to hit the girls that hard had to be fast. The traffic that time of night is at a snails pace which is how fast he should have been going . The girls were in a turn lane not a passing lane or speeding lane.. If this poor child has life long injuries, they need to put him under the jail. A better idea may be to let some moms have him for about an hour.

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
