* As seen from the page picture, a one strip joke in ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' was about Jon stressing the need for communication with others while obliviously committing vehicular manslaughter.

** Also, in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros.'' several of the courses involve racers completely oblivious to the fight taking place. To be fair, considering the obstacles they usually have to deal with, four fighters trapped on a 2D plane probably doesn't seem to threatening. Justified with the Runaway Five van in ''Melee'''s Onett stage, however: They are being chased and can't afford to slow down.

* It's well known, and frequently lampshaded by [=NPCs=], that the player character in any VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto game DrivesLikeCrazy - even the name of the series practically insists on it. But if out of interest you try to stick even vaguely to the rules of the road, you'll soon realise ''everyone'' does. They might obey traffic lights, and get out after fender benders to [[BlatantLies exchange insurance details]], but they don't make the slightest effort to stop for crossing pedestrians and their usual response to danger is to take off at top speed.

** Played for laughs in an early episode where Brian points out that Peter isnt a very good driver, and reminds him of his trip to the Southwest. Cut-Away to [[WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndTheRoadRunner The Road Runner]] stopping along a highway, only to get plowed down by Peter.

** Another episode has Peter attempt to fake being crippled in a hit-and-run by an unknown driver to get a movie deal after a falling out with Joe. This fails after Tom Tucker, who Peter took the tape of his "accident" to, that not only is the person getting hit by the car just a scarecrow dressed in Peters clothes, ''Peter is the one driving the car''.
--->'''Tom Tucker:''' Mr. Griffin, you cant expect me to believe this. That's clearly a dummy wearing your clothes, and when I freeze frame... that's YOU driving the car!\\

* The traffic in ''FreedomForce'' actually swerves and brakes to avoid crashing into obstacles such as rubble, dinosaurs or your heroes. However, it just makes the way the stronger heroes/villains use them as ''thrown weapons that explode on impact'' even more horrifying.

# '''Hit-and-Run''' - An even more egregious version than the one above. In this case one of the cars actually makes contact with the person in the road, but just keeps on going. No attempt to swerve or slam on the breaks. It can range from a sideswipe with a mirror to a [[LookBothWays full-on direct hit]] that sends the unlucky individual tumbling over the car. But does the driver get out and see if they are okay? No, they just keep driving like nothing happened. No attempt is ever made to track down this bad driver, and they are never seen, heard from or mentioned again.

# '''Mommy! Look!''' - Similar to the one above, except the distracted person has a small child (or barking dog) in the back seat. The child notices the action and desperately tries to get the parents attention, but the busy parent just tells the child to [[NotNowKiddo "keep quiet."]] When Mom finally does look, it's too late and the action has passed them by, leaving her to scold her child for distracting her while she's on the phone.

* The '''Mommy! Mommy!''' variant was played to the letter by the 2008 ''Film/GetSmart'', when Smart is trailing behind a low-flying aircraft in traffic.

* Likewise, the ''Franchise/SaintsRow'' series is filled with idiotic drivers who either fail to notice danger or overreact to it and plow through anything that gets in front of their bumper. ''Gat Out of Hell'' goes one further by featuring demonic ambulances driving around the streets of Hell whose sole preoccupation is flattening as many pedestrians as they can.

* {{Spider-Man}} frequently hitches rides on the top of cars. Rarely does the driver notice the sudden extra weight of a fully grown man on their roof. Nor do any of the people driving around him seem to take much notice of that guy on top of the car next to them.

* In the "Night of a Million Zillion Ninja" arc of ''TheTick'', a ninja messenger crosses a road in the middle of the night and is promptly run over (Jaywalking at night in dark purple pajamas isn't very safe).
-->'''Driver''': I think I just hit a ninja!
-->'''Driver's Wife''': Well, keep going, we're late enough as it is. It's not like you hit a collie or anything.
