I disagree with you all.

You said the driver wouldn't be held responsible. That if you were jaywalking and got hit, it was "tough luck".

Here, a driver is by law required to be in control of his vehicle at all time, so as to not get into accidents even if the pedestrians around him - or the other drivers - are clumsy idiots. Of course, the law isn't applied blindly and I doubt you'd be punished if someone throws himself under your wheels. But, on its own, "the guy was jaywalking" is not an excuse for failing to avoid him.
