Crossing Harvester is fun walking from Applyby GO to work. I, and a bunch of others that just got off a bus, waited for a break in the cars, when there was finally a little gap we scampered across like rats, at a side street with no markings as there are none on these industrial roads. Fortunately agile able bodied adults all of us.

Anyways, point is it got me thinking about how crossings are merciless. If you don't get out of the way in time you get run down or honked at. Sometimes if your timing is off a little in a tough spot, someone takes their foot off the gas at least. But you become used to it living here, and of course learn a habit to yield to vehicles and run like you're playing frogger at some of these tough spots. After all, one does not stop their car in the middle of wide arterial racetrack road to let someone cross between lights. Even if it's in a residential area.

Then you travel somewhere where courtesy crossings are plentiful and everyone comes to a stop as soon as they see you looking to cross. And then it comes into full contrast how sick it is here in Ontario at the moment.

Now that intersection has a light and if this driver got a Careless then they were either aggressive or distracted and the lady crossing had right of way. Still pretty harsh streets for the most part, if you walk too slow you might die.
