"Back at it this morning. Seven hundred wwl wwl tired after watching the national championship beat down last night. We'll be talking about that later on in the morning, and we begin with a much much more serious news than college football. Of course. And it has to do with the safety of all of us as pedestrians and motorists in the city Cincinnati at times, we're one or the other right, as you know, on Friday, a cool rain police officer was struck and it turns out that that was a fatal accident. He's out investigating rain-soaked road and call rain. There was an accident there as often happens when whether gets implement and Dale woods gets out of his patrol car. He's a fifteen year veteran and Adele woods is then as he's investigating the crash struck himself and he succumbed to his injuries overnight. It just a heartbreaking story for those who've been following this and in the community to when you lose a police officer in a fashion of being on the job like this, it affects all of us and something is as tragic as this. Of course. Why did you bring you together? I know the the calling police department has received under Mark Danny a lot of encouragement. And of course, kind words, and I'll add mind to that mix in whatever slight way, they may be with the loss of officer del would passing away last night with his family by his side. And you know, it kind of fits into what we're talking about this morning with lawn public safety co-chair Amy Murray, and that is Cincinnati streets, and this is call rain, but I conclude call rain as much as Cincinnati's anything. Of course. And we've learned over the past couple of years at streets of Cincinnati are very very dangerous out of the big three cities in the state coordinated data from twenty seventeen Cincinnati's the most dangerous. We had a case of a young girl getting struck and killed in a crosswalk walking to school near western hills university high school, and we've had several accidents like this involving Carson passages the point where law and public safety has decided to take up the issue Amy Murray. Good morning. Good morning, and I want to also extend my condolences in Coleraine. I'm so fat, and I know the whole communities just devastated with the loss of officer details, and you know, we're talking about pedestrian safety is a police officer. You never know what you're going to have to deal with on a day to day basis. And it's just devastating for our community. All the, you know, public safety officers in the region when you lose someone I am just it's just devastating to watch for Dale and any past I guess quietly last night too. And and fought like a like the where he is for the last few days hanging onto life. But did that make it, but you know, there's a bigger takeaway here too. And here's an officer Amy Marie investigating a crash scene, which means that you have lights on you have a well an area, you have patrol cars, of course, with their lights activated warning other motorists to slow down and be careful and yet he becomes another statistic. Unfortunately, when we're crossing the street down. Town Cincinnati or anywhere. We don't have the same lights near us in the same protections in the alert to other people out there. And we have a lot of tragedies. What makes Cincinnati so uniquely different Amy Murray, in your opinion that we are the most dangerous of Ohio's three biggest cities when it comes to pedestrians and cars why? Well, you know, it's we're looking at it, and we had this. Let me go back. We had a meeting on public safety yesterday and Gaby Rodriguez parents were there, and she was the girl that was struck and killed by watching highschool, and we're trying to deal with city council of how can we prevent any of this from happening? And especially we're looking right now at schools because we have a lot of kids that are getting on metro buses while it dark in the morning crossing streets, where maybe Dr Crosswalks, and you know, part of what we're doing is we're putting flashing lights in the Crosswalks in the school area. But people know, but what's interesting Sloan is as you may recall a few weeks ago. There was another person that was struck. A date or high school, and there was a police officer with their lights on at that. Same intersection. So people knew that there was a crosswalk coming up. There's a police car there were lights and someone was still struck. So what we really really have to focus on is driver, safety and pedestrian safety. And we're going to do everything we can is a city to get lights and flashing things and signed let people know, but I just ask everyone out there. That's driving. We just have to be more vigilant. We absolutely must and out there the Rodriguez family. Mr. MRs Rodriguez came in yesterday Dhillon public safety and talked about the death of their daughter. Their loss, and it just really strike home. That is a driver you're driving. You might not notice if someone comes out, you know, we always. Doc between parked cars. So I just encourage everyone that's driving just be extra vigilant. I even noticed myself after this meeting yesterday because it was just so devastating. There were probably three times that I had a cracked my cellphone. I'm driving either changing the radio station or someone call him. I know I'm just focusing on the road. And I'd agree. I found I've been driving behind you. You're a terrible writer, but I'm just encouraging people that you really have to just stay focused and just say whatever else is going on in the car, you have ignore it. You should not be taxing on the phone or anything like that. I mean because when you just hear the loss of a family to their daughter that was killed by a car. And now officer would then you know, it happened. I think more than four hundred times in the greater Cincinnati area that Tony was hit by a car. And so and I would encourage pedestrians. Also when you are crossing a street, you know, whether it's at a crosswalk, which is ideally where it should be. But if it's not you got to really look because you can't assume the cars are going to see you. And you know, we really need to get that message out that every needs. We're gonna do everything we can to make Crosswalks areas safer and superintendent Mitchell was at our meeting yesterday because of the CPS superintendent because she's so concerned about this. And you know, part of it is if you have a metro buses picking students up if it's not near crosswalk. Walk then you are going to have people and other side of the road crossings, and some of these roads are very busy in the morning and all day long. So we're really looking at those. So that were not foreseen are high school students or junior high students to have to cross it in a dangerous area council person. Amy, Mary, she's co-chair law and public safety talking about Cincinnati streets is the most dangerous in Ohio when it comes to pedestrian and car accidents, four hundred accidents in there was something like nine or ten Fatos. I believe in Hamlin county alone last year, which is a high watermark over the last two decades and this fits in, of course, with the profound tragedy of the death of officer. Dell wasn't rain struck by a car while investigating a crash scene. And I look at this Amy Murray in as you dig down into the details of these accidents now, those fatal accidents, and you were saying, you know, be careful behind the wheel of a car don't text and drive pay attention, but in almost all except for the Gabrielle Rodriguez tragedy. She was crossing crosswalk out of the ten nine of them. The pedestrian was at fault. So I look at that and go can we do better with Crosswalks, but do people just not care or pay attention when they're walking I understand the driving element. And it's easy to let lay the blame. It it distractions and devices, but what responsibility in burden does the pedestrian have. Well, they absolutely do. And part of our tramp part of what our transportation department said yesterday. Excuse me, is that we need more. I guess three in education, and that's not going to solve the problem by especially for school students. Excuse me, we need to let them know that they need to be careful when they get into cross even if you're in a crosswalk. You're not invincible cars are still coming. They might not see you. And so we're looking right now at least at the school Crosswalks of putting fines up just reminding people some of the new systems that we're going to have slow any persons in the crosswalk would hit a light. And then it will start flashing so that motorists know that they're coming. So hopefully by pedestrian doing that dealt think about it, and we need to make sure that they do press a button for the light goes off. So that motorists notice in that crosswalk, but you know, someone's driving along and if they're distracted for a minute and booking down and you get in a crosswalk. They might not see you. And even though you have the right away. It's a bigger vehicle. You know, you're the one that's going to be injured. So we're really trying to work with people that when you're in a crosswalk you've got to proceed with. Caution. And I can't tell you how many times, you know. I see people that go and Crosswalks than assume I'm in a crosswalk. But you absolutely cannot assume that you need to look every direction, and if a car is coming you'd have that contact with the driver to make sure that they see your eyes. And you know, that they see you. Yeah. No question about that. And and that is the thing even in a car, I look left. I look, right. I look left again before I drive through an intersection this morning. I'm driving and getting off the ramp to to Montgomery road here at the station off seventy one. And my light turns green look laughed. I look, right. I look left again about the hit the gas in this dude blows through the late late red light had I just gone as soon as the light turned green like a race car. I I, you know, he's pretty far away. I don't think I would have been struck. I probably would have reacted. But that's why you gotta do that. Because people aren't paying attention and clearly blowing through a red light. So he can get the McDonald's I love to go and slap that guy around, but I had to get to work to come talk to you. So. We we have these tragedies across all the time because people are in a hurry. Is it really that important to get that Cup of coffee is it worth deliberately going through a red light or not paying attention. Because you gotta get that text message that someone just sent you. All it takes us a simple distraction. I'm guilty of it as anyone else looking at my phone driving fast. I I get it. Here's me preaching. And I need to take better care. How I handle my business behind the wheel. Because in the blink of an eye. It could be over for you or a complete stranger whose life could end tragically like like this officer del woods in Coleraine township. And that's what the you know, again, that's an inactive crashing where you have lights activated. That's the one. I don't understand is this happens all the time you see videos like the state highway patrol where they've got a vehicle pulled over the lights are activated. The troopers on the side of the road, and bam somebody hits the car. I don't understand how you don't get over or how you wind up striking a vehicle that has its lights activated. That makes no sense to me. It makes absolutely no sense. And we've had two accidents like that with officer woods, and then the young girl at my high school where priests lights were flashing. We were sitting there we as a city. We're trying to do everything we could to let people know here's a crosswalk, and so it's really both on the driver and honestly destory on. But you know, I think of myself as a conscientious driver but yesterday after the Rodriguez family where they are. And it just touched me so much because having lost a daughter and people can look down and be distracted in a minute. And not only could you hit song. But your life changes. Also, you know, no one wakes up in the morning, and it gets behind the wheel of their car and thinks that this is going to happen. And when it happens, you hear people say, I just looked down for a minute or I did that. So you know, I would just encourage everyone. We've really got a relook at it. Because when you and I learned to drive he didn't have all those distractions. You might have a cassette tape in your car. But you know, you didn't have a lot of distractions of other things that are going to buzz and beep in your car, so I just encourage everyone driving right now. Just be extra cautious. And, you know, the Rodriguez family made a common and said, you know, we had never walked with our daughter the route she went to school to realize how dangerous it was or as far as where she had to cross some of the streets..

"One two six seven. Are we just really really really bad at driving in Cincinnati. Is that what this is? We've got a few stories going on. I bring this up because later this week allegedly. We may get our first significant snowfall. And of course, you know, all bets are off. Then we just we simply cease to exist when there's snow on the ground this too in light of the tragedy that happened on Friday night and Coleraine rain where he police officer. Del woods was investigating a rain. So cracks is you know, we had crazy amounts of rain over the weekend and early part of the weekend and vehicle crash in a poll. He was struck by a pickup truck tonight at seven o'clock and call rain township. I was texting back and forth chief chief Danny on this. And they're having a little bit of a vigil for officer woods in his family to. So of course. And I know I speak for everyone listening that the officer and the chlorine. Police department are in our thoughts and prayers at this time because you know, it's one thing to be out there in in driving around. But when you're jobs to get out in investigate accidents because it's raining so much people get not paying attention or wind up losing control because of the weather and this guys out there in trying to do his job. And then he then to becomes a statistic. It's it's it's sobering. And frightening at the same time. But as we speak right now in Cincinnati city council chambers. They're having a debate in a hearing over Weiss Cincinnati streets are the most dangerous in Ohio, and I'm looking at data from twenty seventeen that indicates then that Cincinnati. Is number one. When it comes to accidents and just being a dangerous place to operate a motor vehicle. And not only that operator moving up, it'd be a pedestrian because in the past few months, if you think about there's a number of kids who have been hit by cars walk into school. Western hills university high school comes to mind Gaby Rodriguez was struck. Here's this young lady going to school excuse me in a crosswalk, and it struck by a car still haven't found the individuals because the driver took off last year. There was something like ten fatal accidents involving pedestrians in handling county ten which is the highest number in the last two decades and an eight and nine of those cases the pedestrian was at fault. Okay. So we have people who are not paying attention to walking eight and nine and that was not the case, obviously with Gabriella Rodriguez. Here's a kid going to school and INA crosswalk in struck. Anyway. But an eight of nine fatal the pedestrian was at fault. So one of my say, all right. Are we just bad drivers? We not pay attention. Here's what I here's what I think's happening. And I don't know why we are. I guess leading the state in this stuff here in Cincinnati. But a number of things come to mind with me to answer the question as to why this is happening on such a a a high basis here in Cincinnati is number one is that we have. If you look from the driver's perspective here is that you have smartphones in cars now, I don't know if every accident is caused by people not paying attention, but you have smartphones and cars, you also have. And if you look at newer cars to especially it used to be here's this little radio you'd have maybe a cassette player track back in the day right turntable. If you're as old as Willie Cunningham and mess with the radio of button, whatever. Now, you have literally laptops in our touchscreens, right, which resembled tablets. You know, you get nicer cars and have like a seven or twelve inch literally a computer screen in their TV screen. Let's call it. What it is. We have heads in their tuners. Right. That have screens it can play DVD's on it. And the like, and so there's so much more distractions in the car outside of the the cell phone, which in the mobile phone gets a lot of blame. I know. We have that as well. I think the overall attitude though, is okay. Well, that doesn't answer the pedestrian. Why is why nine or ten or eight to ten of these accidents the fall of pedestrians? I think because of the nature, and I'm just kind of spitball and this year, you tell me if you agree or disagree. Is that we have become so self absorbed. In America today because of society because of technology, and I think both these two things are linked is it maybe have somebody on the phone in a car, maybe someone on a smartphone as a pedestrian, but largely we do think the world revolves around us around me, and you now you may not think then caring about other people. I know I am. I'm sure you are too as well. But we tend to be rather self absorbed. And I think there's a lot of people on the roads and a lot of people in life who think the world simply revolves around them. And I think that number has grown. There's always end people like that. But I think that number has exploded because of things like social media because everyone has a brand everyone has an identity. Everyone is famous online. Everyone is told that they're special and their different in when you're fed that your entire life. I think that your overall worldview has changed that it's not necessarily about looking out for other people. But hey, you know, what people should be looking out for me to win a lot of these cases. Where you have pedestrians are crossing. How many times have you driven down the street somewhere? And I see this in Cincinnati when I'm in areas of Cincinnati, the time driving through a residential area. And it used to be when we were kids are playing and we played a lot of street hockey, a lot of baseball with tennis balls grown and football. And everything else is kids. Get the Hallo cars coming game off you move everything out of the way. Now kids to stand there. And then look at you and go as soon as we get a break in the action. We'll stop and then you can drive through we have adults that literally we'll just hang out in the middle of the street talking in some neighborhoods, not even bother get out of the way, you better slow down. Look at the guy who was beaten to death right pulled out of his car and then beaten shot when a Taba ran out in front of his car. And he wanted to hit indicate even though he had the right away. The in the dad, and the I guess the resident there would ran out immediately salted and killed the driver because the kid ran out in the street is that you know, you should you should anticipate a kid darting out a two or three year old playing. The middle of the street. It's your fault. Even though you have the right away and pedestrians are supposed to be looking out for you. We have an attitude that guess what the world should stop when I commanded. And I think it's because we're fed a diet. If you're the most important person in the world, you're somebody to everyone special, and if you if you take that and look at that online in your online profile most people think, hey, you know, what I'm on the same level as some sort of celebrity now that may be a little bit of an exaggeration and a stretch. But I think you know, what I'm saying we have become more self absorbed than ever before. And I think when you have people behind the wheel horse self absorbed combined with people who are pedestrians who are self absorbed. There's no wonder why we have these at record levels of pedestrian car accidents and Cincinnati. It doesn't surprise me at all. And I think the honest certainly is on the driver. But you know, if you're running around the streets and crossing the streets, jaywalking hanging out in the street, whatever it is. And you get hit you certainly become a statistic that we talk about here. But I think we have to look at a reason why you think car should be stopping for you. And I think the other thing compounding this thing to as I said technology, certainly factors. And if you're a driver, I can't tell you how many times you're sitting at a red light. And I was dread- left turns because I know that I'm gonna get screwed when it comes to making a left turn the lights, turn and invariably. It's always the first person second person not paying any attention whatsoever. In here. We're so polite, and so nice that we refuse to use our horns and people does there when they look it's green, and they'll go through the light turns yellow scores everyone else behind him. And then these cycles repeat it again, adding a little bit to the intensity adding a little bit. But that's an aside. I I really think I think we live in a day and age where we're narcissistic or self absorbed not necessarily out of touch, but we're more concerned about well. Looking at our device, I think between devices and our own self-absorption, our narcissism those two things are contributing to the epidemic in pedestrian car accidents. Probably. I don't know if it's the case with officer woods, but nonetheless, if you look around and just look around you how many drivers do you see out there have no business being on the road whatsoever. And I think the third leg of the stool that I'm making a number one is narcissism and smartphones or devices, but also the fact that we don't do very good job teaching people how to drive anymore. And I as I recall when I learned how to drive in probably you it was taught in school. You know, you go to when you were junior senior you go to driver's Ed class for half a period. Today, that's been cut budgets. I don't know about your school district if they still teach it by now, my kids went through and Mason, it's something you to pay for individually, but you don't even really have to do that. Right. Even pay for it because your mom and dad will teach you, well, if we now have a generation of people who are also self taught by their parents, and your parents are bad drivers, you are handing down genetically bad drivers. We don't have the impartial third party out there anymore saying, you know, what you need to work on this. Now, you're not qualified at and we just push people through the system that way used to be you would be driver's. Ed. It seemed like it went on for like six months in school where you'd be sitting in before even gotten a car. And now it's a couple of classes here AAA Joe blow's driving school and mom or dad will take at your garden. You'll take you out maybe twice in. Now. Here's your keys in. So that's why you see people who are driving the way they drive these days. And we've always had by bed reiver's, always will. But it's it's the lack of things that are thinking forced to what the rules of the road are. And then the number two, and this may talk to I guess our economy in some degree. But there's a lot of dumpy. Carson the roads to the kind of add to this as well. Many times you see somebody drive with like no lights on not even turn their lights on what's raining, which is a state law, by the way as is getting the hell out of the left lane. But those two things had seemingly never enforced to see people driving weather where it's raining or snowing out all the time dusk-to-dawn, no lights on and these are newer cars to you gotta like some of these cars have the automatic. It's turn to the automatic mode. And it will will help you out right there. So I think there's a number of factors that go into this thing. This is not just drivers. It's easy to go driver smartphones. That's it. Well, if the bulk of the accidents are the fault of pedestrian, I think it's back to the self-absorption thing. I think it's the fact that we think everything the world should begin end stop and start on our command. And it doesn't work that way. I don't want to sound like, you know, Hillary or something and say, you know, we're a brother's keeper. But you know, you drive in certainly give me looking out for the other guy. I saw all about me Osama about you. I know we have deadlines I'm as guilty as everyone else. I drive excessively fast. I try to be the safest possible I understand that. But you know, there's also some common courtesy out there too that I think is dragged drastically lacking today because all those factors five one three seven four nine seven thousand eight hundred the big one and pound seven hundred AT and T Greenhills James here on the Scots alone show.
