Kid staring at his phone, stepped right into the street without looking. He was bruised up but ok. Poor woman that hit him was a wreck, a cop asked me to talk to her (I was the best witness) so I kept assuring her she was in no way at fault.
I've dodged a few clueless texters, haven't collided with any yet.
I saw some pol in Jersey suggesting wearing headphones in public should be a misdemeanor. I think the law ended up being 'within X feet of a roadway.'
People ripped on him for being a "nanny state" control freak. My take is let the Darwin awards ensue. I think you have to be pretty stupid to wear headphones when riding a bicycle or jogging/walking around traffic. Just don't ruin my day by darting in front of me like the above (long hair, btw) teen.
