The parent did react at around 40 feet away. But my probability calculator says that reaction was a "oh no he didn't" reaction, rather than a "oh , didn't see that" reaction.
Your head is too far up your to understand the binocular reference... and note you havwnt adressed any other pts. 'Chang in impression of depth' ok... what r the dimensions of the intersection? Fps of the vid and fps it was recorded at? Acclerating, set speedd or bike delcelerating? Again....assumption/presumption not fact, you don't KNOW except a bike blew a red and hit a pedestrian.

I sprint, but I'm a noob. What if you're approaching a light that's been green for 60 seconds, you think you can avoid a drunk coming through the intersection at 60mph ?

getting the idea now?

Now throw in the other factors... vehicles speed/action?



You know... and that's about it.

By this rule alone, people should never cross a road. "Pedal misapplication" is well documented even with cars at a dead stop.

Stores should close too, since folks cannot possibly trust cars to stop OR TO STAY STOPPED.

Really?! And how often do you see parents doing that? You means to say hold the baby in one-handed while pushing the stroller with the other? Have you ever hold a todler one-handed? Do you know what that does to your field of view?

Try being a parent first, then give advice.

This

It's retarded to stop at every crosswalk to unstrap the baby and walk across with baby in hand then stop and put baby back in stroller. That's just dumb

I see people cross the road all the time without looking for people who might run the red. It always grinds my gears to think these guys are so confident that when the signal says it is ok to cross they don't even bother looking over their shoulder for oncoming traffic.
