      =v= Very good piece about targeting pedestrians rather than
      motorists in the wake of pedestrian fatalities. Based on
      recent events in New York City, but more widely applicable:


      Of note: "Punishing pedestrians without first targeting bad
      _drivers_ is the opposite of Broken Windows* -- instead of
      deterring bad driver behavior, it enables it."

      * Criminologists find the Broken Windows hypothesis lacking
      in statistically-verified results. But it is what NYC's
      Police Commissioner says he's doing.
