Wintertime Pedestrian Blues

Posted on Tue, Jan 13, 2015 at 4:00 AM

To the person in the white truck who laid on the horn at a woman in blue walking down Main Ave at 9:50 Wednesday morning; Yes, I was walking on the road, leaving you only ten feet of the twelve foot wide lane on which to drive your six foot wide truck. Sorry. In my defense, there is no sidewalk on that side of the street. There is a grassy slope which is currently covered with lumpy uneven ice. If I attempted to walk there, I would probably slip and fall into the path of traffic. Unfortunately, the bus stop I needed to get to is on that side of the street. So, my options were to cross at the crosswalk and walk for half a block on the side of the road, or stay on the sidewalk and cross a busy street in the middle of the block. Both are unsafe, and both are guaranteed to piss off impatient motorists like your good self. Please notice that I have refrained from telling you to go fuck yourself. That's because I realize that you have no idea this situation exists, not just on Main Ave. but in many areas throughout the city. Now you do. Consider this a public service announcement. —The Voice of Reason
