Steven M. Sweat's curator insight, June 23, 1:08 PM

It is a shame that cities are resorting to "flag waving" by pedestrians to prevent accidents at intersections.  This is an interesting experiment, though, into increased visibility and its relationship to reduction of mishaps between motor vehicles and persons traveling on foot.

It is tragic that 13 people lost their lives due to the negligence of General Motors.  The civil justice system is the only true deterrent to this type of corporate greed.  Regulations and enforcement can only accomplish so much.

Steven M. Sweat's curator insight, March 25, 12:25 PM

Municipalities across California have begun stepping up law enforcement efforts on pedestrian traffic laws.  This comes on the heels of a spike across the Golden State in pedestrian injuries and fatalities.  This video is a prime example of people failing to abide by the California Vehicle Code sections which require motor vehicle operators to yield the right of way to pedestrians in crosswalks and require pedestrians to not enter roadways unless and until it it safe to do so.
