It amazes me how adults knowing that people occasionally run red lights, actually pull out into an intersection without looking both ways. I don't care if fI have a green light or not, I always see if someone else is coming down the street in either direction.

When the tower says "taxi in position and hold" for take off, there's no way I move an inch onto the runway before verifying that no one is landing on the same runway I've been cleared onto. People make mistakes. Some people don't follow rules. It's up to me to protect myself as much as I can.

If the taxi would've done the same (looked both ways), then the night would've been less interesting .

It was fully 5 seconds from the light change to the instant of impact. A car moving that fast would be a long way away in 5 seconds. It is possible that the driver did look, but the Ferrari was far out of sight such was the speed.

If the driver of the red car was drunk, then I hope he/she is no longer living.

he's dead, and a female passenger in the taxi is dead.
