Hit and Run

Posted on Fri, Jul 22, 2011 at 2:40 PM

Yesterday I was crossing Oxford St. via Chebucto, I was at a crosswalk and made sure that little walking man was giving me the go ahead to cross. I don't know what you were busy doing, but it sure wasn't looking for pedestrians. As you continued to move towards me, I put my hand on the hood of your car and made eye contact as your foot stayed on the gas. My arm was locked into my shoulder and I stumbled to stay upright, but continued to walk, I was completely in shock. You did not pull over, you did not apologize, you did nothing. And neither did any of the other 15 or so witnesses around us. I got to the other side of the intersection and sat on the ground to catch my breath and calm my nerves. I waited for a while, hoping maybe you would come back to see if I was ok. Nope, you definitely didn't. I cannot even fathom doing what you did and driving away. Watch the fucking road from now on. —Pissed Pedestrian
