  •  Impeding the crosswalk doesn't affect safety? WTF? (1+ / 0-)

    Let me guess - you drive everywhere and get annoyed when a pedestrian tries to cross.

      I don't drive everywhere and when I do, I yield willingly to pedestrians.

      We're not talking about impeding a crosswalk. We're talking about people who tried to stop for a red light, and couldn't quite do it without going slightly - I mean centimeters - over the line.

      If you're going to get a ticket anyway, you might as well barrel on through the red light as try to stop. I doubt this helps the cause of safety.
