Quick reactions prevent Russian driver from hitting pedestrian

Published July 19, 2012

When a pedestrian is hit by a car, generally the driver is considered to be at fault, especially if the biped is in a crosswalk. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that a good many of these incidents could be averted if our society hadn’t become so “Me first”. Fine, you are in a crosswalk, you have the right of way. That doesn’t do you a lick of good if you are dead.

In the video before, traffic going one way is at a standstill. The driver of the car ahead is cruising along at what appears to be a reasonable speed, when all of a sudden a pedestrian runs out from between the stopped cars. The driver, more by luck than talent, manages to miss the person and the cars parked along the side of the road.

Had this person been struck and killed, the charges would have gone to the driver, but is it really his or her fault?
