DRIVERS LOOK OUT for runners!!
Sunday, August 16, 2009
I'm sorry but I'm just so fed up w/ people who drive and don't look out for us runners, bikers, walkers. What happened to pedestrians have the right of way.
The other day I actually had to slam my hands on some guys hood so he would know I was there. He practically hit me. He was coming out of a side street and only looked 1 way, started to pull out and didn't even see me. What happened to looking both ways before you go. That's not the first time something like that has happened while running.
Then there are the people who pull up over the cross walk so you either have to go out in the street to get around them or way behind them. It's just rude I think.
The worst are the people who park on the sidewalk. I thought sidewalks were for people. What! people running by should have to risk getting hit by running in the road so your precious car doesn't get scratched. I voiced this to some people who stopped at a yard sale right in front of me as I was running. Am I the invisible runner or does this happen to other people.
Anyway my point is PLEASE try to be more considerate to runners and other pedestrians out on the road when your driving. Just make a point to look out.
Feel much better now that I've vented, lol
