City of Bad Drivers

Posted on Wed, Apr 22, 2009 at 4:54 PM

I'm so sick of crossing at a CROSSWALK and being cut off by a car that's apparently in so much of a hurry that it's worth risking my life. Or crossing a CROSSWALK and having a car zip by real fast behind me as soon as they feel they have enough space to do it.

The law says that when someone is crossing at a CROSSWALK you have to wait until they've crossed completely. What if I turned around because I forgot something and I get hit? Or what if I don't see the car that does to get ahead of me real fast and I get sideswiped?

This city has some of the worst driving I've ever seen.

Normally I'm listening to my iPod when I walk and don't hear what's coming around me, but I look when I cross and the other day a car came out of nowhere after I looked and almost hit me...some 90 year old man with his 90 year old wife - at least she looked horrified, as if she knew he didn't notice me.

I'm going to start carrying rocks in my pockets and next time some fuckwad decides to speed ahead of me at a crosswalk, or behind me, I'm going to throw a rock at their fucking car windows. LEARN TO DRIVE YOU FUCKING RETARDS!
