  • That is not a very pedestrian friendly area. It usually always has a high degree of constant traffic at all hours, best not to be walking in the Cajalco Road area. This is very sad.

  • This is heartbreaking. I wonder how the pedestrian was struck by the motorist. Was he trying to cross the road? If Laurel said that it is not a pedestrian friendly area, then perhaps the speed limit should be changed to make motorists slower? Maybe that would help avoid accidents in the area.
