Bonfire abused at zebra crossing

By bonfire 23 September 2005 26

Last night I was on my way to a political engagement. I started the Stanley steamer, pulled onto the road and proceeded in a northerly direction. I turn a corner, enter a side street in which the road was divided 4 lanes with a concrete strip up the centre. I approached a zebra crossing and saw the pedestrian step onto the crossing on the other side of the divided road. At the speed I was travelling I knew I’d be through before he reached the divide. As I crossed the zebra part on my side, he reached the central divide and screamed ‘arsehole’ (I don’t think it was lurkergal unless she has a potbelly and a beard, but hey, you never know).

My question to the riotact masses is ‘was I in the right?’ should I have stopped as soon as I saw him step onto the other side of the divided road zebra strip ? Was he misdirecting anger after a hard day ?

Am I in fact, an arsehole ? Did I break the law ?

Or did I just act as I should have.

What’s Your opinion?

To quote David Caradine in Kung Fu; “The monkey does not know why he is the monkey, yet he still climbs in the trees”.
