R.I.P. Capt. Stiles. As for the driver, it your responsibility to be alert to your surroundings. I am sick and tired of reading about these types of incidents where the driver states "I just didn't see him/her." The good Capt. apparently utilized all of his safety equipment. Where is the personal responsibilty???
