Boston Mayor Walsh got a lot of flack (deservedly, in my opinion) for blaming the (potential) victims in car & pedestrian crashes. He said that people should not look at their devices while walking, and should use the crosswalks. Of course both of those things are true, and even more detailed situational awareness is good, but drivers are at fault at least as often, and they are much deadlier when they make a mistake. Emphasizing this, there was a disastrous car vs walkers incident in Times Square NYC today. I'm sure people will try to make it be a terrorist attack, but the NYPD doesn't think so. Just a remarkably dangerous driver in a crowded place. Human bodies are so resilient, and yet so fragile.
