Well, as I mentioned, it's pedestrians. I (as I'm sure everyone knows ) commute by bike and I am so tired of pedestrians just stepping off onto the road without looking. It has been particularly unnerving lately because Toronto had a run of at least one pedestrian killed per day for two weeks a few weeks ago. Most of these people appeared to be wearing iPods or talking on their cell phones. Which is another peeve of mine. Why are people so inclined to disconnect from the world around them? I will admit to reading on the streetcar the few days a year I need to take it, but at the same time I'm paying attention to what's going on around me. It's not only dangerous to be so unaware, but I also find it kind of sad that so many people find it necessary to ignore life as it's happening.Originally Posted by ClosetRTWatcher;3848599;
ETA: And another pedestrian/bike issue - I get seriously irked by people waiting for the streetcar standing right at the edge of the curb holding umbrellas. There have been a number of times that my eye would have been punctured by a spoke if I hadn't been wearing glasses. It's not like I am one of only twenty bike commuters in the city - there are reported to be 30,000 of us - we are not a rare and unusual sight.
