People who jaywalk with their hands in their pockets without even looking at the oncoming traffic

Guest post by Mark Nickel

I get it. There isn’t any traffic coming for a little while, but you’re not gingerly strolling through the park. You’re on a road, so please show the slightest sense of urgency. The pedestrian has the right of way. I understand that too, but I drive above the speed limit everyday. You’re breaking the law. I’m breaking the law. The only difference is I’m in a 2500lb killing machine, and you’re protected by a couple thin layers of fabric. I’m not going to ever go out of my way to hit anyone crossing the road, but a teenage girl texting and checking her hair in the mirror might never know what that bump in the road was.
