They can take the piss as long as they want. That's life. They have the most rights being the most vulnerable. Pedestrians, equestrians, cyclists, motorists. That's the league table. Peds top it. They got here first.downfader said:To a point you're right, but there does come a point when the critical mass of pedestrians start to take the p***. We have to remember there is actually a big reference to the green cross code in the highway code too and that peds have an obligation to cross when its safe - and that defines safe as a good gap in the traffic.
[rant]The green cross code is a pile of perncious toss which seeks to compel the most vulnerable of road users to behave in ways contrary to their instincts in order to minimise the risk of them being slaughtered by a numpty in a motor vehicle whose 'right' to drive in at a speed and in a manner which endangers others seems to regarded as fundamental in our (breoken) society.
Everything that is wrong with the failure of shared space road provision in this country is summed up by the Green Cross Code. Making children change their behaviour rather than cyclists/drivers. Blaming victims? Pathetic. [/rant]
