The driver of a motor vehicle shall yield the right of way to a pedestrian lawfully within a crosswalk.

The title is a quote from the Nova Scotia Motor Vehicle Act. So, I recently moved to North Street and I find myself  in awe of how many drivers just mow through the crosswalk across North connecting Maynard and Fuller Terrace. To get to work, I must deal with this piece of pavemented hell every afternoon. It seems like every day I am waiting between three to five minutes for someone to do the legal thing and give me right of way. A red light at Agricola often happens first before I can get on with my day. You are legally responsible to stop in a marked crosswalk. Did you know that? Yeah, I watch you as you drive towards the bridge and hardly any of you trolls even give a glance of your surroundings as you pass me by. I've got a notepad ready for tomorrow for your license plate numbers. Consider yourself warned. —Lady Giving You a Sarcastic Thumbs Up With 311 on Speed Dial
