More loose @ real-life Frogger

News Flash – the number of pedestrians killed on D.C. streets has increased in 2005, despite an aggressive ticket-writing campaign this summer that targeted jaywalkers, bicyclists and motorists, D.C. officials said.

Now why doesn’t this surprise me? Maybe because of the heated reaction to the cold ass sh*t dropped on a run-over pedestrian last month. Maybe the hatred of bike messengers or most egregious, the Bling Bling Giant‘s takeover of a sidewalk for cars, only recently thwarted.

No matter, as the WashTimes reports 15 pedestrians died by the car in 2005. While the cops wonder why, I ask: Why is this sidewalk closed?
