We have been writing about “going with the flow”—the challenges and risks of entering into, changing positions within, and exiting from the flow of traffic. On Sunday, August 8th, 2004 at 1 am on the Lions Gate Bridge, not going with the flow resulted in the death of a man directing traffic around a stalled car. He was struck and killed by a vehicle that was driving the speed limit but could not stop in time when he stepped out in front of it.
