    There’s been a big campaign in my city to stop people jaywalking. They’ve painted on the crosswalks, “One of every two accident victims is a pedestrian.” They don’t seem to realise that means the other person isn’t….Local authorities also seem blissfully unaware that people jaywalk because local motorists ignore traffic lights completely and consign the traffic code to oblivion the moment they pass their driving test. You cross when you can, no matter when, because you can’t expect them to respect a red light, a crossing light, or anything else. I’m told it’s because people driving cars now grew up riding mopeds. I think in reality it’s just the local mentality, that basically says “I get to do what I want because it’s me, and you have to let me.”

    Unless your city has an unthinkably high incidence of motorists striking multiple pedestrians, I can guarantee their statistics are bunk.

    Imagine if the pedestrian said, “Not unless you say ‘please.’”

    I didn’t know that! My husband is from Spain so we visit almost every year. I almost always trust the Spanish drivers compared to the American drivers (who typically are terrible with pedestrians), so I find that interesting. Usually, it’s the Americans with the mentality that you list. Is it mostly in Seville or other Spanish towns? We mostly go to Madrid, Cadiz and Pontevedra.

    Considering the brief case and papers, they probably assumed he was a lawyer. It’s hard for some people to pass up the double points!

    You’re safer up north. Yes, they drive fast up there, but it’s coordinated, almost like ballet. I think the craziness is just the local attitude. Here, I’ve been hit by a moped when I was in a pedestrian crossing with the light in my favor!
