Maybe we should have a don't drink and walk campaign started?

So people at bars should teleport?

Also, even if speed doesn't increase the likelihood of an accident (it does - higher-speed/stoppin-gdistance changes a near-miss into a hit) it absolutely increases the severity of the accident.

So what if the pedestrians are at fault in a substantial minority of cases? Shouldn't the spaces in which we live be fault-tolerant?

If a workplace, particularly one with small children in it, was so unsafe that minor negligence with no signs or barriers resulted in death of the participant, it would be considered ludicrously unsafe.

Imagine a button by the door of a grocery store that produces a violent explosion if you push it, in plain reach to everyone. If somebody pushed the button, who would be at fault?
