I can explain to you, but I can't understand it for you.

So if the light is red its 100% safe to cross the street, and there is no need to check for that don't stop before crossing. Especially when pushing a stroller with a child in it. Got it!

Well that I will always check before crossing or walking around a corner in a parking garage especially with child in tow. I'm not trusting others to follow the rules and keep me and my child safe.

I still find a way to look around the cargo van, truck, wall, whatever before crossing the road.

Uh, the pedestrians are looking to the left as they cross. What device are you using to view the clip? I guess you pull baby strollers instead of push them. Rider's fault, period.

I would let others go first, and not let the stroller be one of the first out in front. Not sure about pulling the stroller backwards unless I lived in russia where it seems you have to drive like an asshat. I would walk side by side with the stroller putting myself in front of incoming traffic, and getting a better vantage point of incoming traffic.

I also never said it wasn't the riders fault I just find the person pushing the stroller to be equally as stupid as the rider.

Holy . You need a larger viewer. The stroller is not the first one to cross. The bike went behind one pedestrian. I'd keep my baby at home. Happy?

Baby at home with the woman just the way intended.

I was referring to the pedestrian with stroller not the rider. Just misspoken

To add flame to stupidity. At the speed it appeared the rider was going he was a good distance from the light when it turned red. That would imply he had plenty of time to slow down and stop from the pedestrians perspective. Same as when you see a card 1 mile down the road coming to a red light, you "assume" they are going to slow down and stop with all the other cars who are stopped at the red light.

I am amazed 826 hasn't blamed the cagers. Of course it's always the cagers fault.

Now compare those two scenarios and see who the dumb is.
