Villagio Wall of Shame!

Well, sadly, that didn't take long! Thomas had an early meeting this morning, so I had to walk Bella to school. Going there I didn't encounter any problems. However, walking back I did! This guy DELIBERATELY drove through the crosswalk even though he saw me about to cross! AND the next car nearly did too, but I quickly got in the middle of the walk in order to snap this shot! It was rather amusing to me that he hit the brakes when he looked through his rear view mirror and saw me taking his photo!!! TOO LATE! And when I was finished, I turned around and warned the car behind me that they were next if they thought they were going to continue driving through crosswalks!

Exhibit B:

8:05 AM - Driving through marked crosswalk, endangering pedestrian.

I'm armed people, and you've been warned. Next?

I don't believe I'd eve let my child, no matter what the age, try to cross that street alone! You go girl!

We call them Zebra Crossings and in the Uk the law is that a car must not pass over when someone is on the crossing. I am always extra careful here as I gather you are legally safe crossing the road ON them, but the car may still pass over as long as it misses you, scary stuff indeed.

I love it, armed with a camera! I'm glad you did that. It's one of my pet peeves. Once, in our downtown area, the police staged a pedestrian to cross and then had hidden police on motorcycles placed to track down and ticket every car that didn't stop once the pedestrian was in the cross walk. My husband could watch this from his top-story office window. He said they ticketed dozens of people that day.

YOU GO GIRL!!! I don't know where some people's minds are these days. Well...ok I think I do but my Southern upbringing won't allow me to say..hehe!! I walk Chaz to and from school each day and thank goodness the folks here are nice and aware of what's going on around them. Safety first.

Good for you! I think I'd probably opt for a video function, if the camera has one....
