IDIOT TIPS FOR PEDESTRIANS

 

Maybe in our fast Pace world which we all live in, we should all take the time and read this story! We all might just learn something!

 

angelAs REALTORS we drive around a lot and we see a lot of things that we just have to shake our heads at, especially when it comes to pedestrians.

When I was a kid I was told that cars can kill me, so get the heck out of their way.

Now-a-days kids, teens, and adults alike think they can do what they want because they've been told they have the right of way and drivers should always be in complete control of their vehicles.

That's fine in theory, but for those who need a reality check, I've written a few simple tips:

Look BOTH ways for cars when crossing the street - unless you're under the illusion that all drivers always have complete control of their cars and they wouldn't ever talk on their phones, sneeze, cough, yawn, text, drink, play with their radios, put on make-up, try to smack their kids in the back seat, steer with their knees, or aren't so old that their reflexes have retired years ago.

When walking on the street, face traffic, so you can see on-coming cars - unless you're still two years old and think if you can't see it, it can't hurt you.

You and your friends are walking on the road and you're smart enough to face traffic, but remember when a car does come toward you have the power to walk in single file - unless you're on the inside and you really don't like your friends anyway.

You're on a bike so you have every right to be on road, but it may be in your best interest to move for two tons of steel that can kill you - unless you want to die for your rights.

In a parking lot, you do NOT have the right to step in front of ALL the cars - unless you're too dumb to know that just because it is parking lot, not all the vehicles are parked.

And if that's the case - well it's natural selection...
