Drivers and Pedestrians

It is certainly admirable that everyone wants to make drivers drive more safely.  Nevertheless, I think that there should be a campaign to help pedestrians understand their part in being safe.  All over the city we see people crossing the street when the light is against them, jaywalking, trying to outrun a car coming down the street, standing in the middle of the street to see if their bus is coming, etc. etc.  These practices are dangerous!  People must be made aware that they should not do these things.  It is tempting fate!  Drivers can only do so much to maintain safety.  Pedestrians must do their part as well.

I agree! It’s always the drivers that get the blame but pedestrians are often the ones that could use some training and attention. That is a good idea, especially for my neighborhood:

Its a great idea!! training is of course the best solution but government should also come up with policies and training sessions to educate pedestrians on their role for maintaining the safety of themselves and drivers.

We have the same situation in the UK. If DVLA stats are anything to go by its only getting worse!
