Nope. We spend a lot of time teaching kids to look before crossing. It seems instinctive because it's drilled into your head, not because some natural instinct of human behavior takes cars and streets into account. Why would instinctive reactions to danger be present if danger could not be avoided, and any attempts to avoid it are futile because it will happen or won't? How would it benefit the species? Pre-destiny, especially on the micro-scale is bollocks. The universe is reacting to what happens, not dictating it.
