2nd St., NE, Northbound at Constitution, NE; 9 December, 2013; 1057
Look, Rocket Scientist, I do not like it either, but the law states that I must let a pedestrian, in a crosswalk, with a pedestrian signal in his favour, pass. I had signalled to turn left onto Constitution Avenue, but waited, as the law demands, to allow the pedestrian, in the crosswalk , with the WALK signal in his favour, pass. That did not sit quite right with you, so you blasted that horn at me. Look, Jack, I do not like waiting for pedestrians, either, but the law does not YET require that I like it (the DNC is working on that part); it only requires, as of this posting, that I do it. I agree with you, we motorists should not have to wait for pedestrians, even if they ARE in a crosswalk with the WALK light showing. Still, until the law changes (no' bloo'y loikley, as they say Down Under), I am going to let them pass. Blast your horn at the people who make and support these laws, not me, who only complies with them.
Once again, proof that SAAB stands for:
