I work for 18 years as a tourbus driver and guide. It is wrong to state that the driver must have seen this pedestrian. If the driver were going slowly enough, as they do at that location to show the buildings, it is well possible that the pedestrian thought the driver was slowing to a stop and suddenly stepped out in front of the cable car tourbus. I know for a fact that pedestrians do this all the time especially while they are cell phoning and texting and not checking their surround ings. Of course it a tragedy. But the article should stress how pedestrians have everything to lose by carelessness and neglect of their own safety. This was a professional driver and I have a strong hunch that the pedestrian was at fault in misjudging or not looking before stepping into the street.
