Are you asking me to compile a list of pedestrian deaths in a specific area or relay the many instances where I narrowly avoided killing someone because they were breaking the rules of the road? My favorite is when a young mother is talking on her cell phone and walks out into oncoming traffic that has an advance green.
Certainly I could list these for you but you should be able to read the inferences based on data collected between 2002 - 2006 - "Roughly 71% (or 4,519 crashes) involved pedestrians crossing streets. A plurality of pedestrian KSI crashes occurred when pedestrians were crossing streets with the signal (i.e. during the âoeWalkâ phase), which occurred in roughly 27% (or 1,712 crashes)." (ref: New York City Pedestrian Safety Study & Action Plan: Technical Supplement)
So of the thousands of people killed while walking the street, only 27% of them were while a "Walk" symbol was displayed and of those, 21% was tied to "Pedestrian's error / confusion" for a total of, at least, 1,578 deaths.
