For the bulk of 2012, ALL ped deaths were due solely to bad ped behavior.

We’re talking jaywalking, for the most part.

Oh what’s that, man? “Jaywalking” is just a conspiracy from GM and AAA eight decades ago?

Perhaps, but what to you want, to legalize jaywalking?

Then more peds would die, right?

I’ll tell you, drivers get citations and cyclists get citations.

Why don’t San Francisco’s horrible, emboldened peds get citations?

    I call shenanigans. According to https://www.baycitizen.org/news/transportation/pedestrian-deaths-rising-san-francisco/ last year ped dealths were caused mostly by driver fault. Also, please note that you can kill a ped and usually face no criminal charges.

    That’s not what that bit says, at all.

    Are you familiar with the cases? Ped walks out between cars on Lombard. Dead. Ped walks out between cars on Hayes. Hit by a bus. Dead. Ped walks out between cars on Masonic in front of TJ’s. Dead.

    These aren’t close cases. These are 100% ped at fault cases.
