Pedestrians often to blame for accidents

Credit: Craig Ruttle

Nassau County’s program to enhance pedestrian safety is a positive step, but it seems to be addressed more to drivers than pedestrians [“County focuses on pedestrian safety,” News, Nov. 15].

I think pedestrians are more to blame for accidents. They cross at non-designated areas, against traffic lights and, more important, wear dark clothing at night, which certainly makes it much more essential that they cross at designated areas at designated times.
