Without disagreeing with the main points of the article, I note that I am happy to have the press telling pedestrians to pay more attention to road traffic. Not a week goes by when a pedestrian - usually but not always on Sterling Street as it goes onto the McMaster campus - steps off of the curb or from behind a bus directly into my path without looking. So I ring my little bell or screech to a stop or execute a sudden turn and now and then even bump into someone. When all that's required is a moment's thought and a turn of the head.

My point being that more attentive pedestrians would save me grief and them tread marks on theirs jeans. So let's discuss the larger issues, but let's not let pedestrians off of the hook completely.
