That is not what I'm disputing. What I have a problem with is the idea that this can only be prevented by somehow separating cars from pedestrians. It's ridiculous. How is someone supposed to get out of their driveway if they can't cross the sidewalk?

The other point is that any driver who is inattentive enough to kill someone going at that speed (again, try it. Get in your car and drive 10kph.) is 100% culpable. And further to that, I smell BS on this 'report' that a driver going less than 10kph killed someone. You couldn't wrinkle someone's shirt at that speed. Unless of course you closed your eyes, knocked them over and slowly ran them over. Although, at that speed you wouldn't even be able to mount a curb so the car would likely stall before running over a person. Nonsensical.
