Death penalty for “jaywalking”!

18 March 2018. The woman killed by a driverless car, Elaine Herzberg, 49, was crossing the road outside a designated crosswalk. The AI machine had only learned to detect pedestrians on crosswalks! So human error/stupidity and system error/stupidity killed her, as sure as eggs is eggs. I’ve always thought jaywalking was a fabricated crime, just as speeding is. The fools in charge of roads policy want us to drive by coloured signals, road markings and numbers when we should be driving by context.
