    Vehicle operators anywhere must always be observant, and traveling at a pace where they can safely scan the road and skirts ahead for hazards and be reasonably prepared to stop, especially in poorly-lit neighbourhoods with regular high pedestrian foot traffic, coconuts, cows, crabs, and no sidewalk! In West Bay, and other rural/suburban areas overtaken by cut-rate community development, it’s just lucky that these types of unfortunate accidents aren’t more frequent. There has never been a responsible PLA/NRA requirement to have a safety plan to match the rapid urban densification by politically connected slum landlords/developers.
