Wednesday Weirdness #46

I almost got hit by car a turning left on red on Tuesday while I was trying to get out of the way of another car traveling in another direction turning left on red. I had the right of way and was walking with the signal; but, apparently, neither vehicle felt like waiting though their respective traffic signal. I don’t just step out in front of moving vehicles; but it’s had to stay out of the way of cars that run red lights and speed around corners of nearby streets.

  1. Ugh, that’s what freaks me out about walking. We walk in the evening sometimes and I worry about some fool accidentally running up onto the sidewalk.

    Glad you weren’t mown down! 🙂

    • It’s always a danger since I do so many things downtown. But, I’ve had enough close calls that it is definitely something that I worry about. I try to look; but I’m concerned about the one time I’m distracted and don’t. The drivers certainly aren’t looking out for peds even when they should.
