So on Thursday as I was coming home on my commute I almost got hit by some lady on her phone who proceeded to angrily honk and me, naturally. Here's what happened - see the map.
I'm the red arrow, at the corner, crossing in the crosswalk. The blue arrow is the lady in the truck making a left turn toward me.
I was waiting at the corner, after pushing the cross button, and waited for the cross signal to appear, when it did I started crossing.
Apparently at the same time the cross signal is given for that crosswalk, the left arrow is also given at that light, because the lady started careening at me.
She didn't see me until she was about 30 feet away, and slammed on her brakes and her horn. Her window was down so I just simply said "I have the cross signal."
My question is - shouldn't she yield to me in the crosswalk (just like you would if it were people walking across), especially since she's making the left turn?
IMO, I am pretty much chalking it up to her not paying attention and then getting angry because she doesn't know she made the mistake.
What say you, BFers?
