Drivers should consider pedestrians

Thomas Granneman, personal development

How many of you stereo-thumping, cell phone yakking, cigarette smoking, late-for-class, inconsiderate drivers know the rule of law for pedestrians in a crosswalk?

Even if you know the answer, it does not matter unless the driver of the three ton behemoth or the 120 mph fast and furious wannabe knows the answer.

Since my near miss in the crosswalk from the upper campus to the Village, I have found a solution that works for me.

The ladies have become my shield, my barricade, my safety net.

I thank you. It seems the machos will stop for an eyeful.

As for the crosswalk rule, the pedestrian must be completely dear of the crosswalk before the driver may proceed.
