Description

Since the implementation of the shared street initiative, unfortunately, some pedestrians did not get the memo about yielding to others.

Twice this week I found myself on my way to or from my home, behind pedestrians who knew a car was coming up behind them (my car is not electric, one can definitely hear it coming) and did not move aside. In one case, the person even looked back, made eye contact and then started walking even slower just to spite.

I wasn't going to engage with either of these people, but seeing as how this kind of thing happened more than once, and I understand there have also been complaints from pedestrians about cars, perhaps it would benefit everyone to have a temporary traffic detail over there to explain "sharing" to those who have a harder time grasping the concept.

Thank you.
