such as this incident of a truck backing into a pedestrian: http://www.bpdnews.com/2010/05/06/daily-incidents-for-thursday-may-6-2010
(will make real link when not on iPhone)
But they leave out even the slightest hint of fault here. Since a
pedestrian was stepping behind a parked car, I'm nearly certain that
either a) the pedestrian wasn't in a crosswalk or b) the truck was
parked too close to the crosswalk if he was in one, and entered it
without a full scan across it. But there's no mention that either
party was breaking the law (and ignoring basic safety guidelines in
either case) -- they make it sound like just some freak accident.
And really? They couldn't bother with even a quick "BPD reminds
pedestrians never to walk out between parked cars" warning? Or, if the
case, "BPD reminds drivers to notice crosswalks." They've included
other such "duh" reminders, like the frequent mentions that people in
West Roxbury should lock their doors or that people shouldn't leave
phones and GPSs sitting out in cars.
