on my way to work this morning i nearly hit someone in the crosswalk. granted, she was crossing when the light was green - so she wasn't exactly in the right - but that wouldn't have mattered if i'd hit her. there were two trucks stopped in the left lane, but the car in my lane, on the right was turning right - i assumed the trucks just hadn't yet gotten rolling. as i was practically five feet from being in the intersection i noticed the waddling woman entering my lane - i had to swerve a bit to be sure to miss her. for a second i thought about braking but that may have only caused more problems. dark cold mornings don't make for ideal driving conditions.
