So you don't mind if people die or are injured as long as it's their fault (even the deaths are preventable)?

And why do you think crossing between intersections is a major contributor to pedestrian injuries and deaths? Look at the recent pedestrian deaths for Hamilton ... most were killed walking on the sidewalk or crossing legally.

The idea is to make the streets fault-tolerant not play the blame game to either pedestrians or motorists.

p.s. Why is there no crosswalk on the south side of the James/Charlton intersection on James? There is a huge lack of safe pedestrian crossings throughout the city.
