Living Streets Canberra are getting all excited about drivers not giving way to pedestrians and using our poll on the desirability of running down talkback radio host Mark Parton as evidence.
2CC’s Mark Parton expressed the attitude of many Canberra drivers in March this year, when he said that it was “common sense” that pedestrians should give way to drivers. His comments were confirmed by an on-line RiotACT poll in which 73% of respondents said that they would not give way to Mr Parton if he were on a pedestrian crossing.
Here at RiotACT we want to be very clear on two things:
- 1) Drivers should give way to pedestrians
2) Unless they’re very sure it’s Mark Parton
No, seriously, don’t run over Mark Parton, I’d never hear the end of it.
