I hate people that cross roads anywhere and anytime in Ottawa’s Market area.
Sure the law says drivers have to stop for pedestrians any time they are crossing the road. For the simple reason that we don’t want dead pedestrians. This does not mean that you can just hop out into the street anytime you feel like it. I have had wandering idiots just step out from the curb two feet from me without looking. Even going 30 kph you can’t stop that quick. If I see a person hit by a car in the market I feel sorry for both the driver and the pedestrian. Hey people if the Market is just a big free for all why are there cross walks and street lights. Wake up watch for traffic, and cross at cross walks. I admit there are many dumb drivers out there not watching where they are going but don’t give them targets.
