Don’t You Feel Safe Now?

In many states, including this one, have laws forcing people to stop for pedestrians in the sidewalk. A good number of students here don’t exactly follow this law, even when you are partially in the road already. They just prefer to swerve around you rather than go out of their way to come to a stop for you. It’s annoying, but to a certain extent understandable as many of them probably don’t have the same law in their home state, and it’s not posted anywhere near the crosswalk nearest my dorm.

Today, however, the lawbreaker hit a new high. Walking back from lunch, one of my roomates was a bit ahead of us. She stepped into the crosswalk, when a police car comes around the corner. I think we all expected him to stop, understandably. But guess what? He didn’t. He drove right around her! I mean, honestly, how are we supposed to respect police officers if they don’t follow the laws they are supposed to uphold? Admittedly, this is a very small example, but an example nonetheless!
