Pedestrians – and roads
OK. We all are pedestrians at times - I've actually done a lot of pedding - hill walking, etc.
What I would like to know is: Why are pedestrians such lemmings?
I think we have a pretty decent system of crossings in this country - zebra crossings, pelican crossing, pedestrians refuges where there is not a full crossing. I freely admit that some roads need more crossings, however why do people persist in the following -
crossing between parked cars into heavy traffic - if you can't see it coming it can't see you
crossing 10 yards away from the crossing - is that 10 yards really worth risking your safety?
crossing while the little man is on red - this makes me really mad; the little man is saying its NOT safe - do not then get annoyed with me for hooting at you
crossing unsafely with children - children are supposed to be the most precious thing in this world; DO NOT put them at risk because you are too stupid/lazy/late to cross safely (what's more you are supposed to be setting them a GOOD example!)
stepping out without looking in either direction - do you have a death wish?
stepping out after only looking in one direction - so when did that road become one way!
assume that because the cars/vans/buses have stopped that everyone else has - motorcycles & cyclists will still hurt if they hit you
