I feel that many will attest to studying the driver’s manual to obtain their licenses, and afterwards ignoring the basic rules of the road once the have license in hand. Many disregard the fact that they must give the pedestrian the right of way at a crosswalk. Many do not, as they seem to be in a hurry to get where they are going.
I see this a lot on East Trent in the area of the Union Gospel Mission. Just because a person might be homeless doesn’t mean they deserve less respect than if someone was trying to cross a street in any other neighborhood.
And a very important rule: In adverse weather conditions and during either dusk or dawn, no driver has headlights on. Relax people, it’s more to be seen than to see.
