Put lipstick on a Pig it's still a Pig

The accident record for pedestrians crossing Pacific Coast Highway in Laguna Beach show half the incidents happen within a marked crosswalk. We don't see crosswalks across the 405 Freeway for obvious reasons, one being drivers won't expect to find a pedestrian crossing there.

Should we expect drivers to react differently? Why? Steven Hansen reports the poor accident record and the dilemma for both pedestrians and drivers trying to co-exist on Pacific Coast Highway in Laguna Beach. Read the article by the Coastline Pilot.
