    I see people walking against the light, jay walking when a cross walk is two feet away and in general not paying attention while in the street or parking lot!

    Honestly, with cell phones, kids and all the other distractions do you really feel like drivers will notice you???? Your best protection is to pay attention and cross only at corners, cross walks, lights etc. I am constantly amazed at the people who think Cars must yield to them EVERYWHERE!!!
