richms:khull: Worse, the council blames pedestrians for the accidents. Under no circumstance should a driver of a vehicle hit a pedestrian. Any excuse for that will probably not go very far in a court of law
If a pedestrian walks infront of a moving vehicle with right of way then in no way is it the drivers fault.
I also blame the dark clothing that people in Wellington seem to wear.
Often seen people in the dark, dashing over the streets in nothing but black. Add bad weather to the mix and its easy to hit one.
