As much as we complain about how unsafe Hamilton's streets are, it's a reminder of how bad it is to be a pedestrian in a rural environment. So many people fantasize about having a pile of acreage out in the country and don't realize the hidden costs of that lifestyle.

So sad, for the family, for the victim... and yes, for the driver. Don't drink and drive, kids.
