Powerful cars vs. careless pedestrian
However, too often cars are showing off their power and typically don’t stop when we are legitimately crossing at pedestrian crosswalks. We, as walkers, are powerless against their four wheels. The other day I walked past a formidable looking government building where they used to make traffic laws for the country until the whole national government picked up and moved to Astana in the northern regions of Kazakhstan. How many people lose their lives due to negligence on both sides, drivers and walkers. In any case, whatever snow we got in big fluffy billows of white has now mostly melted down and thankfully the sidewalks are clearing. If the cars don’t run you over, the “black ice” will get you at sundown.
