High school kids, lunchtime, a pizza place and strip mall beckoning, no crosswalk for a half a kilometer each way. Dangerous place for sure. Apparently kids had been crossing there for years. I am still sure that if those teenage girls had heard the bike coming they would not have stepped out into the street like that. This is truly a circumstance that indicates that the momentary inconvenience of loud pipes most likely would have saved a life.
