SAN ANTONIO -- We caught Julia jaywalking across San Pedro Road, forcing cars to come to a stop during rush hour.

"I cross there all the time because it is too hard to climb the hill and cross at the stoplight," Julia said.

Numbers from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), compiled from the Crash Records Information System, show more deadly accidents with pedestrians happen Mondays with Wednesday having the least.

Records also show 33 percent of the pedestrians who were killed had been drinking.

Using a hot spot map, people are able to identify where more pedestrians are killed.

San Pedro between Linda Drive and Sprucewood Lane is one of them. Another hot spot is Fredericksburg Road between Babcock and Hillcrest Drive.

We saw more than six people jaywalking Thursday afternoon, including a family with small children in the span of about two minutes.

Other hot spots for pedestrian deaths are Austin Highway south of Walzem road to Vandiver Road, Culebra Road near north Zazamora Street and E Commerce between General Mcmullen Drive and Pine Street.

There is also a high concentration of pedestrian deaths in the downtown area.

TxDOT has confirmed a new Z crossing will be built at Culebra (Spur 421) near North Zarzamora as well as at west of Goodrich and the other east of Hamilton. Construction would start next year.

On Austin Hwy between Vandiver and Walzem TxDOT is installing a pedestrian signal in November near the Walmart, near Rainbow Drive.
