When a pedestrian crosses a street, she is fully and completely vulnerable and exposed to inattentive, negligent or intoxicated drivers. This vulnerability requires complete attention on the part of both pedestrian and driver. Unfortunately, a mere moment of inattention changes everything, especially for the pedestrian.
