As some of you on here know, I’m visually impaired and I walk to work every day. I have to cross at this busy intersection and EVERY day, some driver pulls up way passed the white line that he/she is suppoed to be behind and has their car streached all the way accross the cross walk. This forces me to walk out into the middle of the intersection risking getting hit by prralell traffic. usually, there is no room to walk behind the car because the next car behind him/her is pulled all the way up to that car’s bumper.
is this the proper way to wait at a red light? what the bleep is the white line behind the cross walk for if it’s okay for cars to just pull up as far as they want to? do they really think the extra ten feet will get them to their destination faster? is it too difficult to see where you are going when parked behind that white line? I honestly want to know as I have never driven a car. I want to know if I’m the one out of line. I just can’t figure out why a cross walk is even there if I can’t walk in it.
