    Ugh, 14th and Federal is a mess, I live near there. The lanes on Federal there are wide as an interstate highway and all too often I see transit riders making iffy dashes across traffic to try and make their connecting bus. It’s really a bad combination, it wouldn’t surprise me if one of those were factors in today’s tragedy.

Now, reporters are looking into why there are so few marked crosswalks in one of Sacramento's poorest areas.
