I'm just so used to people walking in the street, well . . . that's another reason though I was so PO'd at that guy who hit the dog (& didn't stop) driving so fast through our neighborhood. There's a school right there and the kids in the neighborhood play ball in the road - like other rural areas.

People are much better when in town like Main St. where there's more traffic, but one still has to keep an eye out. Almost ran over 3 tourists who thought the right lane was the sidewalk (and yes we do have sidewalks on Main Street).

People do not 'jog' here except when it's raining, then it's more "get me to shelter".

We don't have sidewalks here either but a couple of good walking and jogging trails.

A peeve on top of the original peeve - Sometimes I'll see a runner pushing one of those fancy-schmantzy 3-wheeled baby strollers in front when she/he is running - IN THE STREET! It's nuts! Their fanatacism puts themselves and everyone around them in danger.

(BTW, I walk-run for about an hour most days, so I do know what it's like to be dedicated to exercise.)

Some people take "pedestrians" have the right away to seriously, runners included, so when they overtake the road the undertaker gets the last laugh.

Ours here are the bikers all dressed in their bike riding garb .... I am talking about those who "think" that they are cars who actually pull their bikes into the traffic lane even at traffic lights.
There are certain towns here that make that practice so dangerous especially on a curvy road where you actually have to cross the yellow line on that curve to get around them and that puts a driver in danger also.

Pedestrians who walk/jog in the same direction as traffic.

Bikers who ride their bikes facing traffic.

If you don't know the rules....stay at home.

That applies to drivers and it should apply to walkers,joggers,and pedestrians.
