Maybe these people are afraid of being attacked or stabbed or sued by some low life lawyer for trying to help.

Growing up I never thought about carrying or owning a fire arm but I now go nowhere without one.
For the record, “You will also see 10s of 1000s of selfish, uncaring, unobservant people doing little to assist other people in need” is what I wrote. It was neither in quotes or italicized.
Anyway, my point was that if they are unwilling to do the simplest of things, such as telling someone their headlights are off on a dark night in pedestrian-packed Manhattan, they (most people in NYC) certainly aren’t going to do anything more involving and potentially dangerous (to themselves).
I have signaled to people about their lights only to be ignored because they are to busy yakking on the phone or texting not caring about there fellow man.
