Stay on your part of the road and we'll all survive!

Bicyclers, runners, walkers really piss me off especially when they refuse to acknowledge the fact that roads were built for cars.. Not for them.

He should have been walking facing traffic so he can see the cars coming toward him. You don't have to worry about what is behind you if it is on the opposite side of the street. I almost hit a biker here in FL wearing dark colors on the same side of the road I was driving on. I was sticking near the right since it was a narrow 2 lane road with no sidewalk and when a large truck comes along you barely have enough room to fit on the road with it. There was a large vehicle in front of me and so I didn't see the biker until I nearly brushed him. Very frightening. Heart pumps radically for a while after that.

swerving is an instinct, I think. Especially when my son is in the back seat.
A car coming my way is drifting into my lane, so I veer slightly to the right to avoid it. And in doing so, I almost killed a pedestrian.
