Maybe I just had bad luck but it sure seemed like a lot of drivers were ignoring the pedestrian crossings last week. There were a few times when I had to jump back or forward to avoid being run over. I'm not the type to just blindly walk out in front of someone, so these people had plenty of room to slow or stop. It wasn't just me either, I saw this happen a number of times to others as well.
Moral of the story: Don't trust anyone, be sure they are stopping or slowing down.
