The forgotten history of how automakers invented the crime of “jaywalking”

Interesting article from Vox.com on how a very simple system – the bigger you are on the road, the more you need to pay attention to others – was turned around in favor of motorized traffic. Or how due to the pressure of lobby groups ‘car drivers be aware of pedestrians’ became ‘pedestrians be aware of car drivers’. It’s time to turn back the clock! And dear politicians: please also ignore lobbyists in other matters!
