When I walk, I wave a lot at intersections - whether making eye contact with the driver who's pulled halfway through the intersection and stopped in the crosswalk and asking "what are you doing? ..... or a smile and a wave to the driver who stops a few seconds early, or pulls back if they've gone too far into the crosswalk.

I've never once been treated poorly for doing that, but I've had drivers say sorry for pulling too far into the crosswalk (and I smiled back, and said it was ok). Especially if they stop for me early or pull back, especially on the side streets where some drivers blow through stop signs, it's only polite to say thank you, right?

Either way, I think it makes drivers more aware of pedestrians.
