rules

Ever notice how obeying rules isn't an issue to some folk until they are on the receiving end?

For example Saturday morning I'm a pedestrian at an intersection with a bunch of other pedestrians. Advance green goes and the left turners go. The walk signal says Don't Walk but yet these two lady pedestrians are trying to rush across the street trying to slip between breaks in traffic causing what I think of as a nuisance to drivers. Fine.

They need to cross the other way as well. Turning traffic goes first then signal says walk. They step out, one last car trying to beat the signal but failing miserably almost hits one of the ladies. She start cuss and gesture about how the man not following traffic laws and I just find this hilarious cause just two minutes before it was her darting into traffic who was probably causing drivers to cuss. But it a juss go to show that people don't think bout nuttin but themselves.

you know, if you complain about this to someone who doesn't drive--they think you are looking down your nose at pedestrians. As if drivers never have to walk anywhere. When I go on foot, I obey rules because I know that I'm no match for a speeding car.

Boy Jdid, what you said is so true about people not thinking about anybody but themselves. Here they're running red lights, not giving away at roundabouts, going through no-entry signs, parking in no-parking zones, u name it. It's only when the Police start booking people regularly they will stop.

I totally agree. Driving a "legs-us," I face that every day, especially in the morning. People are so caught up in the rat race that they've forgotten common courtesy.

I guess it starts with each and every one of us... I know I am guilty of cussing people while driving for doing the same thing I probably do myself. Road rage is a byatch!
