  1. Your headline says the pedestrian ‘collided’ with the car? So walking on a parapet amounts to hitting with force the car that killed him? Please be a little more thoughtful in your headlines. And please be more sympathetic to the pedestrians who are killed by cars. After all we pedestrians have as much right to be on the road and drivers and we don’t kill and injure people by knocking into them.
