I found this video really interesting. I have to admit, I sometimes commit what the video calls a "aggressive yield" ff I didn't notice pedestrians starting to cross (Aggressive yield is where you stop right at the pedestrian walk line)

Amazing!

It's not much better back in blighty, where cars are supposed to give way to pedestrians already crossing... The amount of times I've nearly been run over.

That said, in London the other day right after I'd been approved for my visa I stepped off the curb, looked right saw nothing, carried on walking, next thing I know I had my hand on he bonnet of a car... it was a one way street and I failed to notice. Erm. My bad to the driver of that blue Peugeot.

Most of the time they do, in part because there are an increasing number of them with their own traffic cameras. London may be a little different, maybe because the Greater London area encompasses almost 20% of the total UK population, so the coverage isn't enough to match the amount of traffic, but this is offset in the center of the city by the average speed, or lack thereof, of the traffic in heavily pedestrian areas. Unlike New York City, London wasn't exactly planned, it kinda sorta grew organically, and some of the streets are narrower than some American sidewalks.


Don't interrupt me when I'm talking to myself
