Okay, my untrained Yank eyes saw this as "I nearly got hit by some stupid bitch on a pelican". Yes, I'm an untravelled hick, but you've gotta admit it's a great image. ;)
Oh good grief! It never ceases to amaze me how people ignore crossings. There's one I use every day near my hosue and I don't step out now till the cars have actually stopped because there have been too many close calls and then I get glared at for holding them up! Well they'd be held up even more if I was knocked over!
I'm glad you're alright!
I come beat her up, mkay?
What a bitch D:<
Here, pedestrians are always supposed to have the right of way, but you'd never know. Denton is a small town, its not like trying to cross a street in New York or something, right? It only got worse when they tore the road up to repave it, like because the little lines on the street were gone it wasn't a crosswalk anymore despite the sign still standing at the corner.
Of course, the city did something very wise and put a reverse speed bump in, so now people have to slow down. Mwahaha!
I'm glad you're okay at least!
