Look before you cross the road, kid!

To the red-haired young man in the red and white shorts crossing Herring Cove Road at Chocolate Lake at 4:45 PM Wed Aug 19th, do you realize that without looking, you stepped in front of a Halifax Transit bus about 6 ft away from you. If it weren't for the diligence and quick reflexes of the driver, you'd be in the hospital right now. Pedestrians have as much responsibility for crosswalk safety as motorists. Time to wake up, kid! To the driver of the #14 heading to Leiblin Park that saved this foolish young man, thank you! He probably still doesn't have a clue how close he came to being splattered all over Herring Cove Road, but I saw it and I thank you! —A pedestrian whose thankful she didn't have to witness a blood bath
