So just some annoying things I've kinda dealt with last couple of days.
I walk everywhere I go, I don't drive, so my legs are my mode of transportation. I used to bike, but I've gotten really tired of asshole drivers.
Seriously, there are some drivers that just annoy me. The kind of people that won't mind putting you in danger, or think that they just own the road.
For example, at a cross walk, people are so anxious to just inch closer and closer, or try to beat you out when turning right. One time, I was going past going past an apartment complex drive way, and an jerk that didn't even have his headlights on, didn't stop before turning out on the street, and come close enough to running me over that I had to jump back and the side mirror nicked me. Of course he didn't stop, he just took off. If I hadn't of acted more quickly, I would have been under the car instead.
It seems like people are so impatient, that they're willing to risk someones life to shave a few seconds. SECONDS! I walk everywhere, and I'm not THAT concerned about saving time. I follow traffic rules, and am not careless. But constantly, I am nervous about some driver that is going to come out of nowhere and not pay attention.
It's even worse for people that try to ride in the bicycle lane, and drivers that think they own the road. It's why I stopped riding. I just can't stand it anymore, it makes me too nervous. There a lot of people who do ride to their destination that have it off worse.
Here's one from Bulletproof Courier, this guy has got some balls!
Anyways, just remember, our taxes pay for those roads too, all we ask for is to be attentive and give us the three feet of space.
As for walkers, just please pay attention. That's really all I want, to be able to walk to my destinations without having to worry so much.
