While driving home recently I was waiting at the corner of Gaetz and Ross. A red Jeep (with paw prints around the licence plate) was in the left hand turn lane, when a gentleman started to cross while the walk light was on. After he started, the walk light changed to the stop walk light.
The red Jeep started to turn and hit him — his hands were on the hood! He wasn’t knocked down, but the driver didn’t get out. Making sure her victim was uninjured, she proceeded to yell at him! Telling him that he wasn’t to walk on the stop light.
My question is: When is it OK to hit someone with your car and yell at them?
The stop walk light is there to warn the pedestrian that the light will change soon, not to tell the drivers “gun it.”
I walk downtown a lot, Red Deer drivers really bother me! I don’t understand why they feel it is OK to be so rude. Thanks for listening
