Note in this article, the mother was crossing the street with the child and the 
vehicle was approaching the intersection and the light changed green when the 
vehicle approached the intersection.  Not only didn't the driver see the child 
but apparently didn't see the mother. Not sure what the pedestrian laws in 
Georgia are but there were no charges filed.  Amazing,  If one car hits another 
in the rear, the driver of the car that hit the vehicle in front is charged for 
not having there vehicle under control and I believe that is the case in most 
states but no charges filed in this case.
