    When crossing the street you must take it for granted that half of the drivers can’t see you and the rest of them just don’t care about you.
    Having the Right of Way, does not make the front end of the rapidly approaching car any less painful.
    It is always better to wait for traffic to clear, than to put your life into the Protective Bubble formed by your ‘Right of Way’.
    Pertend they don’t see you! Look Again! Both Ways!
