What ever happened to “look both ways before crossing the street?” Is it no longer taught to our children or practiced by adults?
When are we, as a society, going to realize that most drivers are idiots? They drink, eat, put on makeup, talk on their cell phones, read, talk to their passengers (even to themselves), text — everything but drive. Right foot on the gas, left on the brake and head in the clouds. And yet we continue to step out in front of them. Whether it is walking in a parking lot, crossing at a crosswalk or anywhere else where vehicles drive, somehow we just don’t think about that idiot driver that has more important (in their mind) things to do than watch out for other human beings.
