The car drivers of my hometown are notoriously bad at waiting for pedestrians who are crossing the road. When they do stop for me, I feel a need to thank them and often do so by nodding once or by raising my hand. Many people do this in my town, how is it in the rest of Europe?
I walk and bike everyday and everyday I see drivers speeding, blowing lights and stop signs, and doing other dangerous things. Yea sure pedestrians aren’t perfect, but oh my god I think I see at least 20 BMWs, 40 Lexuses, 15 Benzs (get the point?) driving like they own the road. Don’t get me started on the dogshit bike lanes. If UF wants to do anything about the issue, they need to prioritize and protect pedestrians. But, I’ll bet my ass that nothing will change and Fuchs/UFPD will give us platitudes with no action.
