I was down in Two Rivers, Wisconsin for a while today, and today I witnessed some dumb-ass ( sorry no other way to put it ) pedestrian jaywalk in front of another driver over on forest ave near 22nd st. I blame state, and local governments for not educating anyone except drivers for this problem.
What makes a person walk out in front of a moving vehicle that may not be able to stop in time is incomprehensible. However it is clear that state right of way laws make people stupid!
On the Wisconsin department of transportation website, it has pointers for pedestrians, I wish they would educate pedestrians on this.
Yield to drivers if you are not in a cross walk, or intersection. Or where you don’t have a walk or green signal.
Oh another thing, don’t expect drivers to see you in the dark either. Always look both ways before crossing, I do and no one has hit me. Same thing when people are backing out of a drive way, they may not see you. When I walk at night I choose to wait until they have backed out as I use common sense when I go out for a walk.
