    Stop putting excuses together or making funky assumptions. Start acting responsibly and give a good example.
    Both side need to act responsibly. Its not a one sided affair where you risked your life running across the busy road and expect every car to stop in time.

    So the lesson is to be careful with the blind spot and not to have more and more laws in place. Children and elder people don't know much about the law - but they will be thankful to you if you consider the possibility of their wrong-doing and act carefully. Anticipate the mistakes of others and be prepared to avoid accidents.

    Again, wrong question. Stop asking about who's fault it will be. Free your mind from this pointless question. (If required, a court will settle this.)
    Rather: be alert, anticipate the traffic based on observations. This is what helps avoiding accidents.
    Myself being a motorcycle rider, I have to anticipate the traffic and the sometimes careless / inconsiderate / ruthless behavior of other motorists even more.
