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

That does not take into account pedestrians who ignor common sense and don't look before the cross and try to run in front of cars. Just got back from Guatemala. Cars, motor cycles, tuck tucks moving down busy street full of pedestrians. Not a single accident or pedestrian incedent. The pedestrians looked for the vehicles and the vehicles looked out for the pedestrians. A two way system. Her in NYC it is a one way system. the drivers are responcible for a silly person who tries to run in front of a turning car. I'm sorry, i will run over the pedestrians and take my chances rather than getting t-bones by the 1% of drivers who really speed. Newer high performance cars that let driver accelerate at a much high rate that 20 years ago is also a problem. A Nissan Maxima in the the 1990's had 190 Horse power and was concidered a fast car. The average Camaro had around 200 Horse power. Today people are driving around in 300 and 400 horse power cars .
