I live in Manhattan and drive there as well as walking there. I have had many more close scares as a driver with pedestrians who cross the street anywhere and any time they want, than I have had as a pedestrian with cars.

Drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians need to obey traffic regulations. It's a two-way street.

I was in Washington, D. C. for several days last summer and was amazed at how pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists are respectful of each other.

Of course in D. C. the traffic lights are "intelligent". Something sorely lacking in NYC.
