This is turning out to be a deadly year for Oregon pedestrians. We have the death toll from Julie Yip with the ODOT Safety Division: “Last year, w had 39 deaths. It was quite low last year. This year, as of 11/29/10, we were at 56 pedestrian deaths.”   That number changed again Tuesday morning when a Salem pedestrian was hit and killed. The death toll is now 57 with still a full month to go. Experts say poor visibility is often to blame in such accidents.
