Ever felt like running over a pedestrian?

Wicked Wahine Wicked Wahine
I'm in a foul mood, forgive me, but swear to God, I sometimes want to at least tap 'em!

To be clear, I am not condoning doing anything against the law!!

Am I the only one who ever thinks like this, sometimes? Come, share your grievances, if you have any.

And hey, if you have gripes about drivers while you're the pedestrian, I'm all for equal time, go ahead & share, let the poison out!

No. Put as a driver I have wanted to ram my car into another car/driver.

We make jokes about points, when people make stupid decisions when walking. Like, "ten points for that guy," you know?

I can't say that I've ever honestly wanted to run someone down, but the thought has crossed my mind.

Mind you, after four years of being a pedestrian in downtown Montreal? Cars and their drivers are the devil and they should be banished from the Earth. Quebec (especially Montreal) has some of the worst drivers (and with all of the one-way streets, it's really not very user friendly). I was told to prepare myself for Florida, but in comparison, it honestly wasn't that bad.

A driver is happy and safe in their car while pedestrians are being assaulted by sun or snow. I will never understand why being forced to wait six or eight seconds for a pedestrian is (judging by the looks on the drivers' faces sometimes) approximately the worst thing anyone's ever done to a driver.

If your car is such a terrible place to be that four seconds of lag is cruel to you, why not do something nice inside of your car? Put a photo of something you love on the dashboard, and spend that moment enjoying, instead of hating on me! You could sing the song on your radio, and spend a minute grateful that you have a car. Or you could just scream obscenities at me - you know, whatever's best for you.

Love, The Pedestrian.


(Not at all directed towards you, Wicked Wahine! You're awesome. Some drivers are really horrible to pedestrians and cyclists and motorcyclists, and it's really scary for us!)

I haven't ever really wanted to run anyone over UNTIL... I was on Neurontin once & had a psych reaction & did NOT allow myself to drive! I wanted to kill people, not kidding, I was a bundle of rage. It came out of no where, too. First I was irritable with most people, thinking they were morons, that kind of thing. Then I was driving & my leg started shaking as it was all I could do not to run these obnoxious teenagers over! I had to pull over, park the car & walk around a while. I at least figured out it was the medicine, even though no one warned me of such a bizarre reaction! I had my dad come over with my brother in the car, I got in with my dad & my brother took my car to my parent's where I couldn't get to it. Dad dropped my off at my house. Holy crap, I was only on it a week when that happened. Needless to say, I was talking to the Dr as I was walking off my rage-on.

Well, now that I've shared all that TMI, maybe someone else will fess up, ha ha! No, I don't really expect anyone to really follow through! Relax, this is just in jest!

BTW, I think the point system is funny!

I actually say the same thing you do! When I have rude people cutting me off in the crosswalk, playing chicken with me, etc, because yes, they are warm & dry in their car & I am vulnerable. That is why I NEVER rush a pedestrian or go through the crosswalk while they are in any part of it! So, you can imagine how out of character the incident I related above was! I was confronted with a group of about 12 teens walking & standing in the road & they would not move for me, or the oncoming driver, either. We were sitting there, waiting while they flipped the bird & called insults at us because we were different from them. In that area it became a huge problem. They would smash your car, kicking & pounding on it as you sat stopped, or if you were going slowly. So, this wasn't really a pedestrian incident, but a group of delinquent jaywalking thugs I ran into.

Drivers, let it be known: you must always be careful of bored teenagers and snails.

Not really, but I'm discontented with young adults sitting or standing on the very edge of narrow campus roads, sticking one leg off the curb, I so very much wanted to clip them!!! And those bicyclists riding directly on or outside the divider line of bike lanes, why the hell can't they stay inside their bike lanes???

It is very frustrating when you are trying to drive in a parking lot and there are one or two people sauntering up the middle of the road totally oblivious that a car may want to use that same road. Have a bit of manners and walk up one side or the other. Thanks, it helped to get that out.

See, people? I'm doing a community service with this discussion! Yes, let the venom out! Release the road rage by venting here instead! Even the pedestrians have been invited - but no snails, bog!

No but I've wanted wished I had a gun when certain motorists nearly ran me over when cycling.

Remember you have the gas pedal and brake - cyclists and pedestrians have neither. It costs you nothing (but a few seconds) to brake and let them pass.

I once wanted to smack the guy sitting next to me in my human sexuality class. The teacher was discussing a rape case, and I heard the student mumble, "Girl was totally asking for it."

I'm not an angry or confrontational person. But I had to grip the edges of my seat and grit my teeth not to have an outburst right in the middle of class.

When you're walking you're like "PEDESTRIANS HAVE THE RIGHT OF WAY, MOTHERFUCKER"
and then when you're driving you're like "YOU STUPID SHIT WHAT ARE YOU DOING YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO DO THAT"

But basically yeah I want to run people over all the time. People suck.

It sounds bad but now with school out here there are ALWAYS thoes groups of cockey little teens that , even though there is a SIDEWALK, will walk in the street. Then when you are practically on top of them the split the group JUST BARELY, to let you by. I swear on of these times when they do that as I go by I am going to slow to an absolute CRAWL and see what happens

We have a main thoroughfare, in which the lights are timed during high traffic volume, so as to allow for the greatest flow of traffic. This means long green lights for them, and very short green lights for the intersecting streets. So, I get annoyed when pedestrians ignore the “No Crossing” flashing light, during that ever so short opportunity of a green light. It is during those moments of jaywalking, that I get so frustrated. By the time those pedestrians have passed by, the light is now red. I now get to wait another five minutes, just so I can do this routine all over again.

If my car was only made out of marshmallows, I might just cream one of those pedestrians.
