I was going to reply to durander, but I’m not sure if s/he is being serious or not. You ask “So what if the pedestrians are at fault in a substantial minority of cases?” I don’t think that’s accurate. That report stated that “33% of fatally injured pedestrians acted in a manner which caused or contributed to the crash.”

As kevlahan points out, there is typically more than one contributing factor. We have no idea if the balance of contributing factors are the fault of the person on foot or the person driving the car in those 33% of fatalities- what the coroner’s report is actually saying is that, in two thirds of cases the people who died did nothing at all to contribute to their own deaths.
