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

According to your logic, someone choosing to fly should absorb all the risk and liability of flying with the airlines being allowed to operate unsafe planes that are improperly inspected.

Also anyone driving a car or being a passenger in one should absorb all the risk and liability. What about the auto manufacturer? What about government? Remember the guard rails that caused cars to be sheared in half because some municipalities wanted to save a few bucks by installing guard rails that weren't properly designed to behave as they should?

You are greatly oversimplifying risk and responsibility here. Safety is everyone's responsibility and that includes manufacturers, government, drivers and yes pedestrians and cyclists. If lanes are thoroughly worn out or signage is missing or confusing and that causes a fatality, government is also responsible.
