Woman survives terrifying street-crossing by inches4/23/2012
Here's a near-tragic example of why crosswalk laws are important. From the dashcam of an oncoming car, watch as a woman walks directly into speeding traffic without looking, her life spared only by the spy-movie driver of, fittingly, an ambulance. Ninety-nine times out of 100, this woman would be dead.
The incident might not have been her fault, however. As several YouTube commenters noted, it's illegal to pass a car at a crosswalk, which is marked by the blue sign above her head, meaning the ambulance driver was likely the miscreant. Let's be happy that traffic laws were the only thing broken here.
Who do you think is at fault here?
