Maybe I assumed when I shouldn't have. When I say dangerous decisions I mean because of the environment which in my mind necessitated that any decision carries a certain degree of risk regardless of the legality of said move or not.

In an inherently dangerous environment it doesn't really make sense to target dangerous behavior in an attempt to stop the behavior, especially if you want to see systemic change.

This doesn't necessarily apply to drivers because they usually aren't actually the ones facing danger themselves.
So no, they aren't forced but that doesn't mean pedestrians aren't either. Beyond that I'd say its semantics, so then pedestrians are much more often unduly pressured into making dangerous decisions, regardless of the motivations.
