Car vs pedestrian

May 27, 2015 6:00 am by

Lately I’ve been walking to work a lot (from Leigh to downtown), and am constantly trying to avoid being hit by cars at crosswalks. This morning, while crossing at the crosswalk in front of Bellevue Elementary, a car going pretty fast flew through the crosswalk, almost hitting me. It was close enough that I tapped the side of the car with my lunch bag (which contained one tupperware and two bananas in it). The woman driving the car actually stopped and told me to never touch her car, that I needed to slow down, then called me a jerk. I probably shouldn’t have tapped her car, but I’m tired of almost being hit every time I cross the street. Especially in front of an elementary school. Jesus.
