Why is it that when driving through a college campus kids think its okay to just run right out in front of traffic. Granted the speed limit is on 15 mph but you still have to slam on your brakes. To make things more dangerous they do it at night to too. I could understand it when they use the cross walk. They also do it where there is no cross walk. To me this is incredibly stupid and a quick way for someone to get hurt.

Because they are erroneously informed that pedestrians always have the right of way. At night they are probably wearing dark clothing. "Ninjas"! On campus there may be different "laws". Most state and city laws require pedestrians to use marked or unmarked (intersections) crosswalks. "jaywalking" with no crosswalk may be allowed at the pedestrian's own risk. College students may be drunk, on drugs, or both. Use extra caution when driving on campuses.
