So many pedestrians, so little time!
Why is it when I give a pedestrian the go ahead to cross at a cross walk they insist on sauntering across the road while sending a text message?
I know that legally I am supposed to yield to pedestrians in a cross walk, but come on! We are all on our way someplace and would like to get there sooner than later.
If I have the courtesy to give you the go-ahead, then freakin take it and get your ass across the road!
As a runner I spend a lot of time as a pedestrian.
I try to cross in areas where cars can see me. I try not to press the cross walk light button when the nearest car is half a mile away. I stay on the side of the road and don’t run three abreast and block traffic.
I try to be a good citizen in my car and in my running shoes. All I ask is that drivers give me a foot or two of space and that pedestrians get a move on when I give them the go-ahead.
Is that too much to ask?
Run well my friends,
