Today while walking home someone pushed me with there car. luckily they were not going very fast.
while i was starting to walk through a crosswalk of a residential parking lot someone came speeding up to the crosswalk, this crosswalk is not very long only one and a half cars can fit through at a time.
As i crossed the center of the crosswalk this person drove quickly to one side as if they were trying to drive out in front of me before i could finish crossing. right as they went in front of me i stopped there car headlight were literally right next to my legs.
it was at this point that they finally stopped for a few seconds. in my mind i thought they realized the mistake they made trying to go through a crosswalk when a pedestrian clearly was already in the crosswalk before them.
so i continued walking, this was a mistake on my part thinking this person was being nice and letting me finish walking as i gone past the midpoint of there car they started pushing me.
i quickly turned to face them wondering wtf is wrong with the person why were they in such a hurry that they needed to cross when someone was already in the crosswalk.
all i could think of doing was asking them did they see me walking.
oddly enough when i asked them. they didn’t yell at me for getting in the way or anything of that sort they simply said “Yes i saw you walking” in a pretty calm voice…
so this is just… I’m mad because i really don’t know why someone would think it’s ok to drive infront of a pedestrian when they already have the righter way. or why they needed to “race” the pedestrian by speeding really fast and also putting there car at the very edge of the crosswalk.
When a pedestrian is IN the crosswalk AT ALL you are NOT allowed to pass. i can understand if the pedestrian has not reached/entered the crosswalk but once there in it do not try to speed past them, you are putting people in danger.
