i understand that by my living in the city there are bound to be more walkers/runners and cyclists sharing the road with me and my yuppie mobile.
i get that.
but what i don't get is why walkers/runners don't use the perfectly good sidewalks and instead run in the street wearing all dark clothes in the dark!!!
i mean, do you want me to KILL YOU?
this goes for cyclists too - the dark clothes in the dark, not the sidewalk issue, i know bikes go on the street - because i think it should be a law that all bikers are required to use lights/flashers past dusk - it's just plain dangerous if you don't.
is there a law that i'm unaware of and it's just that no one follows it?
i can't tell you how many times i'm driving down franklin blvd and suddenly out of nowhere a biker darts out in front of me wearing all black and no reflectors.
or a runner is be-bopping along being way more athletic than i'll ever dream of being (show-off) and is practically in the middle of a dark and not well lit road wearing all dark clothes.
i'll ask you again, do you want me to KILL YOU?
i promise i don't want to, i'm far too pretty for prison.
just be careful people, drivers and pedestrians alike, because as the weather gets warmer all hell is going to break loose if we don't.
editors note: this post was brought to you by the fact that i'm apparently turning into an old lady, it's like i turned 30 and became a worry wart. next thing you know i'm going to yell at the neighborhood kids for walking on my front lawn like mrs. maloney did to me when i was young. i'm sorry mrs. maloney, i'm sorry!!
