It’s not necessarily the fault of the pedestrian, if a vehicle is coming around the corner. I’ve had it happen to myself.
Many drivers don’t take the time to ascertain whether it’s safe to turn the corner safely.

(What Islam and secularism have in common is that they are both death cults.)
I often cringe, when I see pedestrians hanging ten over the curb at intersections, while waiting for the lights to change. They give buses and large trucks no leeway to negotiate a turn. (The middle of the bus will be closer to the curb, than either set of wheels — if not actually over the curb.) We have some narrow streets here. People occasionally get squished by buses and large trucks, because they were too near to the curb. I always stand back a step or two — and I get to the other side just as fast as the curb huggers.
