Having grown up in New York City I have more than my share of sympathy for pedestrians, some may recall I only got my first driver's license a few years ago, but the pedestrians in our area put my patience to the test. I can deal with the wacky way folks just stream into intersections in Manhattan, but in our little town we have folks who take their jaunts for exercise who apparently do not understand the role of sidewalks in our society. This morning I had to wait for two older women to waddle through the intersection at our corner before I could turn onto our block ... they were in the street, two abreast, backs to traffic, and completely oblivious to the car behind them. We also see the same behavior at night, with people walking in the streets in the dark... some of them wear reflective clothing or carry flashlights, but all of them are in the streets. I've never heard of anyone getting hit by a car around here, but seeing behavior like this, I'm not sure why not.
