I don't know where I made that statement. However, if there were only pedestrians few rules would be necessary. It is only because automobiles kill people that everywhere we go needs to be controlled by traffic laws, by restrictions on our movement through public space. Right now the automobile dominates everywhere because it is the most powerful, most dangerous object on the streets. And people driving do expect others to get out of their way, even they're one lonely person in a car encountering 12 people on foot. If we really want to get along, automobile drivers would need to give up a lot of their 1950s expectation that moving cars most efficiently is top priority. Because cars kill, drivers should have the greatest responsibility to ensure that conflict doesn't happen with other persons using the streets. All this noise calling for bicycles to be licensed and insured to use the road because cars are licensed and insured is infantile - it's drivers feeling put upon because someone else finds a way to escape all their complications while simultaneously trying to maintain the dominant power of the automobile to impose its way everywhere it goes.So a pedestrian, by nature of being the smallest user of the street network, is permitted to break the most traffic laws possible??
