Crossings at bus stops

I could’ve sworn that in the wake of Tyaisha Cox’s death a few years ago that there would be a change in the positioning of pedestrian crossings near bus stops so that the crossings would be either behind the bus stop or in a position where vehicle drivers (and the pedestians themselves) would have a better line of sight and thus reduce the chance for another tragic incident.

However, they’ve repaved Palmetto Road yesterday but at the bus stop near Fat Man’s Cafe, the pedestrian crossing has been laid out in the exact same place. I remember a girl getting struck on that crossing not long ago, so why they haven’t tried to place it somewhere else is baffling. Maybe the issue was overlooked. More likely, it was hot air.
