Pedestrian safety is becoming more of a concern on Western’s campus. A string of accidents at the start of the 2017/18 school year once again pushed the issue to the forefront of the campus’ conscience.

On October 7, 2015, first-year student Andrea Christidis was struck by a drunk driver on campus. Christidis died in hospital two days later.

The incident prompted calls for new safety measures on campus, such as guard rails.
