Not so much a bitch as a kindly reminder

Stepped off the corner from South Park Street into a side street--yep, still walking in the street in mid-April--only to be nearly run over by someone in a white SUV reversing at high speed in to the curb then slamming on the brakes. Please remember that there are long stretches of sidewalk (usually on the sunless north side of neighbourhood streets) that are STILL under 8" of ice, forcing pedestrians to detour. Ditto to the 2 motorists on 2 separate days who drove along the last bit of Victoria Road at very high speed to South Park (where there still are huge corner snowbanks creating blind spots), slamming to a stop narrowly avoiding killing me and another pedestrian halfway across Victoria: please be mindful that streets are for EVERYONE, not just cars. —Will I live to see Spring with drivers like these around?
