I’m not waiting for a ride–I want to cross the street

I seem to surprise a great many drivers when I try to cross the mini one-way freeways of midtown every day on my way to/from work. Folks, I’m not trying to conduct some bold move of civil disobedience, I’m commuting just like you. Maybe one car out of five will slow down–or even stop–to let me use the crosswalk.

We’re downtown in a city and some people walk and bike, so get used to it. I yield to you when I’m driving in the suburbs, so pay me the same courtesy when you’re in my neighborhood (not that every midtowner stops either).
