Notice to all pedestrians, streets are for cars. Not too recently, great minds came up with an invention called sidewalks. Sidewalks are great things. They give pedestrians a safe place to walk without being hit by cars. You should not walk on streets except at designated crosswalks. Even when in a crosswalk, it is only safe to cross when the light says cross. Most importantly parents need to learn about the benefits of sidewalks. You might not value your life, but that gives you no right to endanger your children.
Sure, no matter what pedestrians have the right of way. But in the end, who is going to be more inconvenienced if you don't follow my advice? The motorist who has to explain to the police that it was an accident; or the dead pedestrian? Sometimes I have to question if I really feel like stopping for some inconsiderate pedestrian. Maybe when you decide to get in my way I might decide not to stop.
