To the middle-aged woman with shoulder length brown hair, wearing a pink shirt and driving a blue late-model Toyota Prius: that was me you almost hit while turning right onto the westbound freeway on-ramp on June 24 about 9 a.m. The light was green, the pedestrian walk sign was lit up. I looked you in the face, and still, you went and turned so close to me in the crosswalk I could have easily reached out and touched your car. PEDESTRIANS HAVE THE RIGHT OF WAY!!!
To the young man with short hair wearing a wife-beater and speeding in a black muscle car: that was a stop sign you blew past while turning right on June 15 about 8 a.m. and that was me stepping into the street with my dog. PEDESTRIANS HAVE THE RIGHT OF WAY!!!
To all the morning commuters mindlessly turning right onto the westbound freeway on-ramp: that was me in the neon green shirt jumping up and down and waving my arms to get your attention so I could safely cross at the green light with the pedestrian walk sign lit up. PEDESTRIANS HAVE THE RIGHT OF WAY!!!
Can you all really not wait the few seconds it takes for a pedestrian to cross the street???
Wake up Drivers!!! Look for pedestrians!!!
Sincerely, a terrified pedestrian who is just trying to stay in shape and is considering the purchase of an air horn.
