I had occasion to walk up to the store today while waiting for my daughters to finish practicing for a Christmas play. On the way I had to cross a pretty busy street. I didn't think much of it as the corner had crosswalks and signals for walkers. However, it was like the crosswalk and lights were non-existent! I waited for the light and started to cross the street when the walk light came on. I hadn't even covered the first lane (4 lane road) when it started blinking to go off. Then as I approached the far side, right turning traffic seemed oblivious to my presence. I didn't think one car was going to stop. I guess it's not just bikes that irritate drivers, it's anything in the road, even if it is legal to be there.
