Lately I’ve stopped this little power play. Most of the time I forge across (after being certain that I’m not going to be mowed down), waving and smiling a thank you to the driver. I figure that it saves time and is definitely safer. And besides, it offers the driver the opportunity to balance out any road rage before doing the kind little deed.
How do I know this? It happens to me when I stop for a walker. Out pops the ‘good person’ me.
