The last few years of Portland's softheaded response to the automobile have only resulted in the dumbing down of pedestrians and cyclists. It's been said many times already, but Portland's pedestrians and planning people are unteachable. Nearly all pedestrian/vehicle "accidents" are easily preventable by the pedestrian. The rest are preventable by the drivers. And intersecting, are the "accidents" that can be prevented by either party. As pedestrians, we have the most to lose. We need to wake up and live.
