The perfect pedestrian: How to make the world safe for Motocracy
It's funny, no, it's sad that nothing has changed in 90 years. It is still the pedestrian's fault.
We have talked so many times about those campaigns to make people who walk wear bright clothing, even carry flashlights and flags, so that drivers of cars can see them. In the UK there have been a number of proposals to make hi-viz mandatory.
With increased runners and cyclists on country roads, legislation needed to make them wear bright clothing - for their own safety— Bob Greenland (@bob_greenland) November 15, 2017
When a tweet went by suggesting that it is "for their own safety", a tweeter found this old cartoon from Punch. It is remarkable how things have not changed much at all.
You're not the first church man to get thinsg the wrong way round and blame pedestrain victims like this! This belief shifts responsibility away from those who should fulfil it and becomes part of the problem. pic.twitter.com/xGYUx9s7Bz— CHAIRRDRF (@CHAIRRDRF) November 17, 2017
