Its possible but most likely the blame is not 100% on one side. Bikers seem very agressive and frequently speed up even on local roads. No charge as of now is inconclusive.


60-29 is a Pay o matic store in the middle of the block, so was she jaywalking and wasn’t looking???? Again the pedestrian is at fault if no charges are filed.
