Pedestrians vs. Cars

When a pedestrian behaves badly the worst that happens to a driver is they are inconvenienced.  When a driver behaves badly people die.  As such, yes, we should have more cops on foot actually enforcing laws regarding drivers yielding for pedestrians. 

As an aside the first comment I read was from someone who clearly doesn't understand what a "yield" is:
Maryland, drivers are required to stop for pedestrians in a crosswalk, not just yield.
Um...yield for pedestrians actually means "stop for pedestrians" but also that a stop is not necessary if there are no pedestrians.
