So someone commits suicide by walking into traffic and it is society's fault for making the road unsafe? That is absurd as blaming the design of a bridge because someone jumped off of it.

I think this is really all you need to read to understand majority culture in the US. Trying to cross a street on foot is the equivalent of jumping off a bridge. Fascinating!

Seriously, though, walking is still non-normative behavior. Driving is normative. So if you're killed walking, it's your own damned fault, what with the walking on the feet and not driving. What did you expect!?!

On the other hand, if you're driving, you're just like me and all my friends. And we're good people, and we always pay attention, and would be utterly gutted if we ran someone over. Therefore, it can never be the fault of a driver, and infrastructure can not be improved upon. That might delay me by several seconds.
