So, I’m reading the Times Union today and come across this story. I find it interesting to see it from the pedestrian’s point of view, because in some cases they’re right; drivers don’t pay attention.
However, neither do pedestrians! I’ve nearly hit people as I was leaving the theater on a Thursday or Friday as I drove down Pearl Street. This past Friday two women darted out from between two cars, and I didn’t even see them! Thankfully I was aware that people are stupid near Jillian’s & The Bayou, and was driving slowly.
Then there are the crazies who like to cross Central Ave. near the Arbor Hill area on into the Village of Colonie. I’ve had people run out in front of me in the middle of the night. They’re simply insane! It’s like they’re daring you to hit them, as if there were no consequence to that.
My bf once told me that I may have the right of way, but do I want my tombstone to say that? Interesting.
Here lies Kari. She had the right of way.
