People Are Just Runnin' Over Kids In New York, And It's Got To Stop

Five kids killed by cars in five weeks, the most recent of which was a 9yo in Brooklyn:

Less than a month earlier, on Oct. 11, a drunk driver killed 3-year-old Olvin Jahir Figueroa in Queens. Samuel Cohen Eckstein, 12, died in Brooklyn on Oct. 8 after being run over by a delivery van. On Oct. 6, 3-year-old Allison Liao was struck and killed in a Queens crosswalk. And Kiko Shao, 5, died in Brooklyn on Sept. 26 after being hit by an S.U.V.
Seriously, people, it's like a city parent's fulltime job X2 to teach their kid not to run into the street. The least you can do--seriously, it is the very least--is to keep your car off the sidewalks. Then let's talk about the seriously basic-est traffic laws about not mowing down kids and other people in crosswalks and such.
