1608. PEDESTRIANS WALKING IN OUR ROADS CAN KILL SOMEONE IF NOT THEMSELVES!

I would love to petition My neighbors and the town to give fines to pedestrians in the roads, but it is their right. I would love the law to say NO PEDESTRIANS ON ROADWAYS. I was driving home today in the southbound lane of a paved country-rural road with white lines for pedestrians not wide enough to keep people from getting killed. I was going a touch over the speed limit at 50 in a 45 mph zone heading south, A truck was going north on this road in Howell Twnsp, NJ and and at a touch over the speed I was going maybe more- He tore off my driver side mirror, the bang was loud enough to feel my ear pop- He swerved into the yellow lines just around the bend as to His surprise there was a pedestrian walking in the road because the line didnt allow her room to walk safely.I was 4 inches approx from a head on! Thank God I am still here to be so mad and saddened that these pedestrians are a driving hazard and will get 2 people killed because they are ignorant enough to think they are invincible and too bad for the driver is their attitude because after all... "Hey better its me walking instead of You, Lucky You- You have a car!" I was shook I had an accident where someone plowed through me at a stop sign in a car and totally destroyed 3 cars 20 yrs ago and it still was a safer accident than the one that would have been today If He misjudged His squeeze to avoid the ALMIGHTY AND RIGHTEOUS PEDESTRIAN! (who claim to be under-dogs - Hey i respect that, l just wish they came with common decency and respect for the dangers they cause to drivers!I know there cant be a Law- But God knows there should be one! Anyone feel there should be a law?
This happens all the time on this road - and I am sure many back roads. I should lose My life because they need to get from point A to Point B regardless of the Danger they pose! and the towns and everyone who blows money on so many insignificant things just cant afford to widen the roads to give these righteous people a place to walk since they are aloud to- Gee, My Mommy always said "stay in the white lines or walk on the grass if You need to!"
It is such a shame that people who "have the luxury to drive", have to either live with...
KILLING A PEDESTRIAN OR HAVING A HEAD ON COLLISION TO KILL 2 PEOPLE AND THEIR CHILDREN!!
WHO THINKS IT SHOULD BE ILLEGAL TO WALK ON ROADS NOT STRUCTURED FOR PEOPLE TO WALK ON?
