Another hit-and-run

News on yet another pedestrian hit by a car that fled the accident:
A 15-year-old East Athens girl remained hospitalized Thursday, a day after she became the third pedestrian run down by a hit-and-run driver this month in Clarke County.
May this young woman recover quickly from her injuries.

What the hell is going on out there?!

Drivers: you are not the only users of the streets and roads. Watch for pedestrians and cyclists, slow down, and, for the love of God, don't drink & drive.

Cyclists & pedestrians: Stay visible and vigilant- be careful out there.
