And if the pedestrian gets hit at 30 miles per hour because he was crossing illegally and wasn't watching the road, why do all motorists have to suffer?

Motorists have to suffer because it's the law. A green light does not give the driver license to hit everything in its path.

1146. Drivers to exercise due care. (a) Notwithstanding the provisions of any other law to the contrary, every driver of a vehicle shall exercise due care to avoid colliding with any bicyclist, pedestrian, or domestic animal upon any roadway and shall give warning by sounding the horn when necessary. For the purposes of this section, the term "domestic animal" shall mean domesticated sheep, cattle, and goats which are under the supervision and control of a pedestrian.
