re: "Pedestrians are stupider than sheep, and certainly by and large don't respect designated crossings." Hmmm, while many pedestrians (and drivers) may be dumb as dirt, most pedestrians in my observation and experience are acting like pedestrians on streets designed for cars. Streets that only have signals or "proper crosswalks" every quarter mile (forcing wheelchair users, pram pushers, and other pedestrians to go out of their way to cross at a signal then double back to their destinations), have shite or no sidewalks or proper lighting, encourage car speed by design (multiple wide lanes, median separation), have "free right" turns that don't require vehicles to even slow down to make right turns at intersections, and so on. It is not clear, given the utter lack of appropriate, safe, and convenient pedestrian facilities in many areas, what pedestrians should do other than do the best they can in a hostile environment. It would be helpful if more drivers were aware that they are only one class of road users -- i.e., not the only road users -- and showed a modicum of care.
