Maybe this comes from 'living on the edge of one OKC-suburb, which is actually closer to the center of another OKC-suburb' (so both "cities" can deny responsibility for my safety ... or something), but I get the feeling that we pedestrians (Walkers without automobiles) don't get the respect we deserve. Granted, most pedestrians ARE children; so we're kinda lumped into the 'immature'-stereotype. That hurts, because--when I notice a busted crosswalk-button at the intersection near my place & go into the store on the corner I cross-to & ask them to report it to the 'city's' traffic-authority--I come in the next week & it's STILL broken! I bet if SOMEBODY shot-out the traffic-lights, the city would 'swoop in' & replace the lights before the day was out (maybe even that hour)! ... One way pedestrians might get 'paid off'--I don't know this for sure, it might be a 'gentlemen's charity'-thing the restaurants & stores do for you if they know you--we might be exempt from sales-tax ... I don't want this to "get out," don't wanna have people driving in & claiming pedestrian-status coz they walked in from the parking-lot Maybe pedestrians should be issued 'tax-exempt CARDS.' Sound right?
