I give a wave of thanks when a driver stops for me. But, I also don't doddle into the crosswalk any old time I feel like - physics you know (and it also happens to be the law in California - pedestrians must exercise "due care" when entering a crosswalk - and other states as well.)

Pedestrians don't belong in the road.

God forbid we exercise courtesy...

At my University the "pedestrians" don't even look when they walk out into the street. They assume we're going to stop. I've nearly hit a couple who then gave me that "what?" look people give when they are utterly clueless.

/some days I want to hit them.

There's a  reason why Grand Theft Auto: Vice City has "MIAMITRAFFIC" -- a cheat code that causes all AI cars to ignore red lights, stop signs, and pedestrians.

I find most pedestrians in LA to be some of the stupidest people in the world.  They practically run into the street without looking - which encourages the tourists to do the same thing.

One jumped out of the way of my car one day as she was jay-walking and gave me that look someone mentioned, like:  'What?  Just because I was walking DOWN the street instead of ACROSS it?'
