I live 1/2 mile from an elementary school, and lots of kids walk. This summer, a 4 way stop sign was added to a former 2 way stop sign. Three of the lanes were marked in white 'road sidewalk' pathways. (Say, the intersection is a plus sign shape. only one of the arms was not marked for crossing.)
The very first time DD and I saw someone walking, they chose the ONE part not marked. huh? Oh well.
Now this morning:
6:15, still pretty dark, heading to grocery store. I stopped at the sign and noticed through my mirror, "something" moving behind me. What?!?
It was a man, all in black and dark grey, slowly jogging behind me, while I was stopped at the light. Now, just a vehicle length away are marked pathways to safely walk across!
But, No, Mr.SS decided to cross wherever he wanted, in between me and another on-coming car behind me, but thankfully slowing down because of the newly added stop sign.
Made no sense at all. He had to deliberately choose the calculated worst way to get to the other side.
edited to add:
OH My Stars!! I saw that in another news video from the road below and made myself forget. That is the stuff of nightmares! Worst fear of driving.
So thankful there were, miraculously! no severe injuries!!
