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: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
