No, and in my opinion, it wouldn't make any difference if she were blindfolded and wearing earplugs. She was a pedestrian with the right of way and the vehicle should have stopped. That's the point. It didn't stop. Not whether or not the pedestrian was paying attention. It's like they're trying to blame her.
That angers me.
Autonomous vehicles aren't ready for the open road yet. Period.
One day they will be, but not today.

I agree that everyone should be paying attention, but this vehicle couldn't even stop in time when it was only going at about 7.5 miles per hour. If she ran out in front of the vehicle, that's one thing, but the way I read it, she was just walking along.
To me, that strongly suggests the vehicle isn't safe.

Speaking of Walgreens, I'll be walking about a mile to one tomorrow. Not for meds or anything. Just some other stuff, like a phone card. (prepaid)
It's about a mile each way so it'll be a good 2 mile walk.

AI cars may not be ready but, here we have many bad drivers and humans that behavior endangers everyone. These texting morons almost walk into me. They text in parking lots and that is nuts.
We should have laws about not texting in parking lots, while crossing streets and walking in public areas.
My husband's moron nice was standing outside her apartment building in Manhattan texting. It was after eleven PM. Some nut man walked up and hit her in the head. She got hurt because she was not paying attention.

Honestly I find that people today are not paying attention. They are so busy texting, talking on phones that they ignore traffic and people. I have to avoid them walking in the mall, Costco and parking lots. This is dangerous for everyone. Some pedestrians are at fault.
Last year Walgreens closed our local Duane Reade. I lost two wonderful pharmacist I liked for 19 years. I am going to Walgreens. Their staff is rude, lazy and incompetent. Last week I ran to one pharmacist. Her husband recently got hit by a car. I am very upset.
