Man, oh man... there's so much to what you are saying, not even all of it has to do with the issue at hand (there should be death penalty for drivers stopping past the stop line at a red light so that drivers to their right CAN'T see what's coming from the left(*)), but I have to question those statistics, too.
If the laws are favorable to pedestrians - like that they really do, literally, always have the right of way - then the "at fault" statistic is going to be skewed. The article states that pedestrians ARE cited, so there must be some restrictions, but without knowing in who's favor the laws are skewed (pedestrains vs. vehicles), a statistic like 64% being any particular group's "fault" is hard to decipher.
(*) I mean, what benefit does a person turning left get by stopping AFTER the stop line? The ONLY things they succeed in doing are blocking the view for people who might be able to make right on red turns, and (possibly) obstructing traffic turning left from the cross street.
