This post is pretty timely. I watched a ped, ear buds in staring down at his phone walk right past the group of us waiting at the signal into I street against the light (light had changed 10-15 seconds prior) and nearly become a hood ornament on some food delivery truck that left rubber skid marks in the stopping process.

With the loud horn and the screeching brakes Mr. Darwinism finally looked up and from the look of his face, was near passing out from fright.

Then again, I don't know if this article was timely or not. I see near accidents like this atleast once a day in my usual metro commute. I see a few other every day that aren't as close calls but see atleast one person a day who was seconds away from needing a coffin.
