Be nice to us peds (and cyclists). I know we’re irritating because we walk so slowly across the crosswalks, and those five seconds you have to wait before turning really wreck your entire day; but it’s because of us irritatingly slow walkers that the gas you put into your $30,000 Acura is as cheap as it is. And it’s too because of us that your children have a smidgen up hope for a green planet when they reach adulthood.
So, while you’re in a hurry to get your nails done or dry cleaning picked up, remember it takes us environmentally concerned folk a hell of a lot longer to get somewhere and you should be gracious and let us cross the street before you vroom your engine up and turn the corner before we can put two feet down on the pavement, especially in light of a minor detail called “right of way.” I’d rather you not run over me, as I’m sure you’d rather not dent your shiny car with my body.
