'Bill' we're arguing at cross purposes. I'm not trying to defend the girl but point out that the story as written here leads the reader to assume this was a 50/50 intersection. The exact location is easy enough to identify on Google Maps. <>https://goo.gl/maps/Qt2Pkx5kwdL2

Intersections should have staggered lights so when pedestrians are crossing ALL road traffic is stationary – and vice-versa. There’s a new-style set of lights like that outside my elementary school. In theory it’s safer but 6 or 7 times, when I’ve been waiting there on a red light and the pedestrian light has changed to green, I’ve seen cars not just ‘jump’ the lights but drive right through a full red! The drivers only pay attention to the pedestrian lights and not the traffic signals. Crazy!
