Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings all around the world
To the young lady with long dark hair driving a mini van or SUV today (January 4) at 3:00 p.m., travelling east on Erie Street and turning south onto Goyeau Street: "You honked your horn at me while I was crossing at the green light and signalled to me that the orange hand was flashing. I realize that the orange signal signifies to not walk, but I have been crossing at this intersection daily for years and know that the white walking hand rarely comes up and it goes directly to the flashing orange, so according to your expectations, I'd be standing there forever. I know how long I have to cross this particular intersection and it would not have turned from green to yellow for at least another 10 seconds, which is more than ample time for me to walk across. Regardless, you could have extended a little courtesy since you were warm in your car and the temperature outside was frigid. You seemed to be in a hurry, my advice to you is to slow down before you hurt someone and don't be so quick to honk your horn. Also, remember that pedestrians have the right of way, especially if the light is still green". Have a nice day!
