Residents of Kemptville are calling on the municipality to improve safety for pedestrians along Highway 43 after a man was struck and killed by a passing vehicle on the weekend.

Boal was walking home with his girlfriend Diane Giliauskas, his son Jason Boal and Jason's girlfriend Kirsten Nordstrand when he was struck on the section of roadway that crosses Kemptville Creek..

"We know 43 can be a little bit dangerous so we cut through the side streets and parking lots and only had to cross the bridge," Nordstrand said.
