Anyway, back to pedestrians. I agree that most probably DO know the rules but many can't be bothered to follow them. It is maddening to see a light about to turn red and some bozo decides to start shuffling into the crossing, appearing completely oblivious.

 

Whereas vehicle drivers are known for their adherence to the rules of the road.

To be clear, I think a lot of motorists are dreadful, too. And a bunch of cyclists. My broader issue is with humanity as a whole, but I'm trying to keep my digs on-topic. :)

I agree... I don't think anyone dismisses the fact that divers disregard many road rules... humanity sucks right now.

We've always sucked; we're just more aware of our suckage now.

I'm gonna have to blame user "http" back in 2008...

 

I blame him for a lot of things. Not only is he a convenient scapegoat (short user name), but he's also a good sport about it. It's refreshing to see that.

I don't know, they seem to make a nice clean entry usually, and typically only go when the zone is clear.

^I did say most... generally 80% of the time I get a driver to stop a a nid block croswalk.

People still suck overall though.
