Crossing the street on foot or a bicycle is always a tad more dangerous when you don’t do it in a crosswalk at the very moment when you’re instructed to do so.
And we get why human beings don’t wait to put themselves in that position. I mean, most of the time, you have be thinking something to the effect of, “What’s that worst that could possibly happen?”

Yeah, that dude lived.
The officer behind the wheel of the NYPD squad car was reportedly traveling at such a high speed because he was responding to a domestic dispute call, but you could definitely make the argument that that speed was unsafe, especially given the fact that he was on a street in Brooklyn.
However, it’s hard to blame anybody but the dude on the bike. I mean, throw out the fact that he crossed the street at pretty much the most dangerous spot possible. I just want to know how in the hell he missed both the flashing lights and the loud sirens of the rapidly approaching police car.
