Crosswalk Double-Cross: Cars Infringing on Pedestrian Rights

Streetfilms presents this brief video montage of cars infringing on the rights of pedestrians.

"With all the great achievements that are abounding in the livable streets movement, sometimes we need to revisit reality. Recently, I stumbled upon a cache of traffic b-roll I was gathering during the summer of cars infringing on pedestrian rights. I'll gamble we've all seen worse scenes, probably daily, but it just got me a little mad.

Please note: every shot in this montage is while the pedestrian has the right of way. And yeah, as bad as this footage is, New Yorkers know it is only the tip of the everyday iceberg. If we really wanted to, we could shoot one of these per day and post them."
