Woman Struck, Killed While Exercise Walking

" A 54-year-old Wellesley woman died yesterday after being hit by a pickup truck on Dover Street, Natick Police said," the MetroWest Daily News reports. "The residential street in South Natick near the Natick/Dover border has no sidewalks, and neighbors said it has become a cut-through street. "

This is the terrible danger when traffic volume increases and there are no design accommodations made to 1) slow it down and 2) safely share the road among pedestrians and cyclists as well as vehicular traffic.
