She wasn't crossing at the lights, and she was wearing headphones. The driver wasn't charged, but was apparently very traumatized, so he certainly paid a price.

The speed limit through that stretch was was 40km at the time and has since, inexplicably been raised to 50. Talk about a road designed for speed. It is very easy to unconsciously get up to 80km/hr in anticipation of the speed increase, long before it's posted, while you're still well within a busy pedestrian zone.

Actually, I beg to differ - I have seen the same thing in Hamilton. Mostly in on King St. in Westdale or Dundas, but I have seen it many times.
