his Tiananmen

I saw a guy get nearly ran over for doing this because the driver could not give less of a shit about his point and decided to just keep driving when the light turned green, but slowly enough that he didn't injure him.

So yeah, don't try this in Columbus kids!

I'd rather sacrifice fifty blind children on the grill of a Cadillac Escalade every Sunday than listen to that goddamn safety chirp.

Yeah we used to have the chirpy ones, but people were annoyed so they changed it to a human voice saying "wait" and "walk." And now it's BOTH, given that there are plenty of sight-impaired individuals who don't speak the language of wherever they are in the world, but the sound is now more like a doorbell or when a train door opens, pretty universal.

I remember the first time I heard this chirp I was in an arts exchange program in Japan when I was about 12. The chirp sound was abrasive and I just figured it meant to wait. I must've waited for 10 minutes until other pedestrians came along and I followed their lead. That's the 2nd longest I've ever been at a cross-walk, the first being when I got way too high before work and stood at a crosswalk like this guy (albeit on the sidewalk) for well over an hour.

(just to clarify that job was totally different than where I currently work, fuck ANYONE who says they're better drivers either high or drunk or whatever.)

I would like to meet this man, shake his hand and buy him a beverage of his choosing.

I'm kinda feeling the opposite: I'm 90% ped/bike and pretty much just drive for work, which means I accidentally end up doing shit like this in a car myself. Even littering requires more of a conscious action on my part. Like, I realize that I fucked up (I've caused MUCH WORSE for pedestrians and drivers than this) but do my best to shrug and smile, and hopefully someone hears me saying "I'm sorry." At this point everyone's pretty sick of videos of self-righteous bicyclists riding slowly down the freeway or intentionally holding up traffic, so why fight fire with fire? If a cop was there, red car would've gotten a warning or maybe even a ticket, and possibly worse for the cocky white car, but that's just s symptom of our natural reactive ontology, or something like that.

White car was being a dick though and I'd probably key his car.

I'm pretty sure if a cop was there the cop would have no idea why this pedestrian would be so agitated and would give the pedestrian a ticket for obstructing traffic.

Where are you from that cops actually enforce traffic laws?

Yeah I'm sure this driver purposefully blocks sidewalks all the time, as opposed to maybe noticing a yellow light a second too late.

Fuck this guy.

...which is why he reversed & unblocked the crosswalk when he saw his error.

Oh, he didn't? Yeah, fuck that driver.
