Each year in B.C., about 65 pedestrians don't survive a collision with a vehicle. My sister-in-law was one of the lucky ones. Lucky, if you count spending two months in hospital, having a steel plate in your leg, and requiring a cane to walk, as luck.
Jane Macdougall was born and raised in Vancouver. She knows a thing or two about fog, too, as she used to do the weather for BCTV. She's a regular contributor to several publications, including a weekly column for the National Post.
