Cars, please stop hitting me...

Posted on Sat, May 29, 2010 at 8:09 PM

I've lived in Halifax for nine months and have been hit twice.

The first time was on Quinpool Road. A car making a left turn onto a side street was too busy looking for an opening in oncoming traffic and forgot to look for an opening in pedestrians. I was about 3/4 finished crossing the side street. The second was on Barrington Street. The car was stopped and making a turn from a side street onto Barrington. I guess he was too busy looking for openings in traffic to see the pedestrian directly in front of his car before putting his foot on the accelerator. These were all at low speeds, but getting hit by cars is not fun. —A little bruised
