I know some folks complain about kids riding bikes without paying attention and also complain about poor and inattentive drivers by Park Ridge. I would like to add to these complaints by mentioning pedestrians as well. I can't believe how many truly foolish people there are that step into the street without looking left or right. This includes adults with children. What is wrong with people? Slow down and stop thinking that the world revolves around you. Please.

Since pedestrians now have the legal right away they just don't care or look they just go if you hit them it's your fault

Karen is right your fault but that doesn't replace a mom or dad in the house. Seriously parents smarten up before your leave orphans at home! You may the right to walk but not the right to leave your children parent less.

What about runners and joggers on the street and not the sidewalk?

*apologize in advance for this rant* We have made our kids DUMB with all these pedestrian walkways. They drive me crazy! Teach kids to know that when there is a 4000lb car coming, it always WINS. You will not win. When I take my kids to any European country I have to retrain them to be SHARP. Go to Europe pedestrians there are sharp and on guard and not looking at their phones when crossing.

Can I also add. walk with a purpose. If you are going to cross. don't be texting, staring at the clouds. cross the street! Lord I swear people cross at snail speed these days as if they are the only people around
