Citing Safety Concerns, Hampton Road Cities Move to Get People Out of Traffic Medians | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

On Nov. 10, Portsmouth became the second Hampton Roads city this year to ban people from standing the middle of divided roads and highways for the purpose of collecting money. Virginia Beach enacted a separate ban on solicitations in traffic medians in August. My colleague Rick Shapiro welcomes these efforts to increase pedestrian safety in his latest post to the Virginia Beach Injuryboard. Rick also offers some essential  tips to drivers on avoiding accidents involving pedestrians and bicyclists.
