  1. Man, so sorry to hear about the fatality on Sunset Blvd, but the amount of jaywalking on that stretch of the boulevard is nothing short of epidemic. We just had some drunk couple shoot out in front of our car, the guy pulling the woman by the arm, with us just missing them by inches. This happens now all the time, day and night. Young immortal hipsters, most of them. This middle aged guy apparently just couldn’t run fast enough. 🙁
