I am always hopeful that things will get better.
Thus is especially true in the realm of pedestrian safety, or to be more accurate, pedestrians taking some responsibility for their own safety.
The number of times per day that I witness pedestrians demonstrate an absolutely blase attitude while crossing a road engrossed on whatever content their phone is pumping through their headphones. Any thought for road safety? Not a jot, leave that to the drivers. After all, it is they that will be prosecuted if an incident occurs.
This may or may not be the case in all instances but what I am certain of is this:
Being hit by a car ALWAYS hurts the pedestrian more than the car driver.
