I blame it on those darn irresponsible cyclists. If they followed the rules of the road pedestrians wouldn't get struck by SUVs.

True that on the people going fast down Folks road comment. I've seen even faster than 50mph. High school kids. Idiots.

Hey Lawrence police - why don't you patrol Folks road! Cars zip up and down this road 50 mph +. Hope this lady will be OK but our police need to do a better job of patrolling this road as it has been a speed problem for years (I know, I live off of this road) It is posted for 35 mph.
