So you decide to cross a 4 lane road. Ok, nothing was coming one side and the other was stopped because of a light, not the right thing to do, but you did it, whatever. That's not the issue. You cross one side and failed to anticipate the people who were turning right and were coming through so you're about halfway through the road when cars start to drive ... but no let's not look like we're trying to not get killed, let's slow walk across the street, chest high, like "you can't hit me", looking like you own the road, making oncoming traffic come to a stop for you. At least look like you're trying to hurry across rather than leisurely stroll with your cup of coffee... and no, don't tell me anything about what if they couldn't move fast because of some kind of injury ... if you can't move fast take your ass to a cross walk!
Oh and on a second note, stop anticipating the walk signal. Walk when it says walk, or have half the sense to look at the cars possibly approaching before they come. I spend much of my time as a pedestrian and have seen this happen so many times. You know that we can soon walk, I know that we can soon walk, just wait two seconds for the walk signal, God dammit. Just Wednesday a girl nearly got knocked over because she anticipated the walk sign, went and was about halfway through when it actually turned into the walk signal. Someone was turning left and had to suddenly stop when they noticed you in the cross walk!
