Re: Pedestrians aren't the only ones who matter.

How do you redesign cars to name it safer for the pedestrian?

Google is trying.

Ralph Nader devoted a chapter to the second collision in "Unsafe At Any Speed". That's why we have seat belts, shoulder harnesses, air bags, etc.

Google is applying the same principle to make sure the only impact for a pedestrian is the one with the car. No secondary impact onto the pavement. They are trying glue.

Place a maximum speed on the vehicle of 25 mph?

That's actually a very easy thing to do. Most cars are or will be equipped with a device that tells its geographic position. A database can look up the speed limit. This can them limit the car's top speed to the speed limit.
