Crossing The Road

Posted on Fri, Jun 13, 2014 at 10:40 AM

I was parallel parking on Blowers Street in Halifax yesterday, into a metered spot. There were no cars coming or going. I put on my blinker to back up. I go slow when backing up. Then I heard a scream. Some woman decided to cross the road where I was backing up. She was not in a crosswalk. My vehicle beeped when she walked behind me, so I knew she was there, but she told me to "watch where you are going." I wish she had stopped and had given me her name, as there is a nice fine for people who don't think about road safety. Crosswalks are there for a purpose. Please don't think it's your right to walk in front of or behind a car. They are bigger and heavier than you and I don't want my vehicle winning that kind of fight. People need to be careful, as the traffic in Halifax is busy and drivers now need eyes everywhere, as some people don't think! That lady, whoever you are, is you—you didn't think! -Safety First
