Fear the Walking Dead

Just finished watching the first episode of the 4th season of Fear the Walking Dead, which I enjoyed, I must admit, except for one quibble.

Spoiler Alert if you haven't seen this yet, but... why, after years of living in an unstable, dangerous environment, where there are not only deadly walkers but sometimes far more deadly human renegades, do people still walk blindly into ambushes without taking any but the simplest and least effective precautions? I mean why, when you have a huge armoured SWAT vehicle, would you all leave it to stroll down a country road, surrounded by long grass and bushes, to help a lone, apparently injured person? Why stop the vehicle some distance from this person then all three of you get out and slowly walk towards them, leaving yourselves wide open to being ambushed? That's just plain stupid. The writers do get damn lazy at times. Or are they pushed by more senior "creatives" into writing these kinds of situations, however daft they might be?

I would add that, apart from this, it was an excellent episode - a lot better than The Walking Dead of late.
