In addition, they will walk slowly. And i noticed, the more people watching them, the SLOWER they walk, sort of to show everyone, hey I don't give a F***, I'm so cool
(and they do this at traffic light crossings too, after pedestrain crossing lights turn red, they continue to walk like a scene in the Matrix in slow motion...)
I have sounded the horn at 2 young girls (20+) before because they just stepped onto the road suddenly without looking and I had to emergency brake. And both of them showed me the finger after I horn them. Young SG girls really jia lat
you can see lots of this incidents at the small roads joining Orchard Road.
What happened to pedestrians looking both ways for cars before crossing the road?
I find that if they stop at the side when they see my car, I would naturally slow down and wave them to cross first - it is courtesy on both sides
but I get very angry when they just step onto the road and walk like they own it
and if you hit them you are the one that gets all the trouble.
Once I was very dulan and I wound down my window, and shouted at one pedestrain to look before crossing, she shouted back saying "Bang me and go jail la"
