Mark Gorton, publisher of Streetsblog, wants to put drivers on notice of their rudeness. While he acknowledges the majority of drivers are not bad or mean people, their actions speak otherwise and they may not even realize it. After all, one rude driver sitting in a crosswalk can inconvenience or endanger dozens of pedestrians in one light cycle. Yet would that same person take a shopping cart in a supermarket and purposely block an aisle and make people navigate around him or her? The betting line says likely not
I totally agree with him, though this is not a go at drivers it is for all road users, we all share the street. And everyone have to just be more polite and obey the highway code. It is not a race or a war we all need to get somewhere and it would work much better if we helped each other.
That means no jumping the red lights, looking at you SillyCyclist, this just means that other road users dislike us (cyclist) even more. And this also goes for pedestrians please do look before you cross the road, it does hurt getting hit by an other road user. Or like the video shows you not blocking others.
So please be more polite and not so rude when you are moving about around town.
