Something I did not know, but learned in my defensive driving class in Alabama. If the pedestrian is not in a crosswalk, you do not have to stop. Now, I don't know about y'all, but I'm not going to run over someone because there not in lines painted on pavement. The report I read stated Donte flashed his lights at the man he ran over, so he did see him. Why didn't he stop or swerve? I know he was drunk, but if he flashed his lights, he was aware that there was something in the road.
