Using the Crosswalk
That’s right. It seems so counterintuitive, but, in fact, most pedestrians were struck by cars while they were in a crosswalk last year. Not when they were jumping out from between cars, not when they were just strolling down the median on 4th Avenue as people do I guess, but as they were walking properly in the crosswalk with, the Times points out, “the signal on their side.” So, learn a lesson from this and jaywalk judiciously. That is definitely the lesson to be learned. Also, don’t trust anything on four wheels.
