I had the pleasure of nearly hitting a Special Snowflake this morning. I was driving along an almost-highway and approaching an intersection (with a green light). I note that there's a gentleman who is considering crossing the street without using either the crosswalk or pushing the cross button to at least get the lights in his favor. Instead, he makes eye contact with me as I am driving down the left lane at 40mph and then RUNS across the right lane.
TBH, the jaywalking wouldn't have bothered me at all (hey, it's Boston), but when his feet touched the left lane, he apparently ran completely out of energy and made the rest of his crossing at a slow walk, despite the fact that I was hurtling toward him at a fairly high speed. Luckily my foot was already on the brakes because I anticipated some idiodicy. I was able to see his smirk in my peripheral view as I passed him.
