I'm not leaving airlines off the hook, you doofus! Learn to read.
But the pedestrian and cyclists bear no resonsibility. Both can go out at night wearing all dark clothing and have no responsibilities to look out for vehicles. They can just walk down the street regardless if they are in a crosswalk or not or the color of the signal.
Essentially, yes. They are not engaged in an inherently dangerous activity, so the responsibility devolves onto those who are.
In the case if cyclists, they do not need any reflectors or lights BECAUSE IT IS THE COMPLETE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE AUTMOBILE DRIVER TO SEE THEM AND KNOW THEY ARE THERE.
You're forgetting about pedestrians. Cyclists need reflectors and lights so that pedestrians can see them. (Bells, too.)
If a pedestrian jumps out unexpectedly from between two parked cars and is struck, it is because the driver was traveling too fast even if he is with the speed limit.
You're really obsessed with this silly canard. How often do pedestrians jump out unexpectedly from between two parked cars? Hint: Not nearly as often as you think.
If that is how all pedestrians think, we would have a thousand times the number of crashes and fatalities that we have now. It's a good thing that the vast majority of pedestrians KNOW THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES and have more common sense than you have. When you get killed behaving the way you do, you won't be able to tell me the car driver was wrong. WAKE UP for your own sake.
It's unfortunate that you can't tell the difference between a moral argument and practical advice. You know nothing about how I behave.
