Pedestrians Have To Be Careful Then and Now
We’ve all heard of road rage, how about road-pedestrian rage?
Today the problem in New York City seems to be aggressive drivers nearly mowing down pedestrians who have the right of way. Sometimes it’s the opposite problem – pedestrians strolling into oncoming traffic when the traffic light is against them. Typically because the pedestrian is so caught up in their personal device that they completely ignore their surroundings.
End of Round One
New York: With tempers a bit short on this steamy morning in New York City Nov. 12th thsi pedestrian at left finds himself in an unusual position – prone – at 42nd Street and Lexington Avenue. He got that way after taking exception to a chauffeur’s driving ability. The driver got out of his car, flattened the pedestrian and continued on his way. The storm continued unabated.
