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

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?

Do you realize that you've just asserted that crossing illegally and not watching the road should be punished by death?

I am simply tired of the inference that every passenger fatality is the fault of the driver. There are better ways to improve safety like through better education and not waiting for pedestrian crossings to be totally obliterated before bent restriped.

And I'm tired of the inference that motorists should be able to drive as fast as they want, and the hell with the consequences.

It's the same like punishing all gun owners because of the actions by a few. Guns should not be in the hands of mentally unstable individuals, just like irresponsible drivers should not be on the road.

An apt analogy. Just as mentally unstable people are not the only ones (or even a large share of the ones) who kill and injure other people with guns, your "irresponsible drivers" are not the only ones (or even a large share of the ones) who kill and injure other people on the road.
