Last Monday, we congratulated Westminster for its exceptional pedestrian safety record. It got an award from the Automobile Association of America for the fact that not one pedestrian had been killed Westminster in 12 years. We failed to note, however, that on Nov. 4 this streak ended. John Fisher, 41, died that evening while crossing Route 140. We hope his unfortunate death marks the start of another safe streak.

CORRECTING A CORRECTION: Did you ever have one of those days? In an editorial Nov. 29, we congratulated Westminster on its award for maintaining a 12-year streak without a pedestrian fatality. Afterward, it was brought to our attention that John Fisher was killed Nov. 4 while crossing Route 140. We published a correction Dec. 2, saying the streak had ended. Now we learn from the city police, that Mr. Fisher was struck 75 feet outside the city line. We are sorry for Mr. Fisher's tragic death, while we hope Westminster can sustain a remarkable streak that's still going.
