Things that Annoy Dennis

Those who know me, know that there are many things that annoy me. Because of that I'm starting a regular blog entry called "Things that Annoy Dennis". Today's item of discussion is drivers who don't yield to pedestrians. The following comes from the Oregon Driver's Manual :

"A green light means you may proceed,
but first you must let any vehicles, bicycles, or pedestrians
remaining in the intersection get through before you move
ahead. All movements—straight ahead, left or right turns—
are permitted. Remember, if you are making a left or right
turn, you must yield to oncoming traffic and pedestrians"

I'm an avid runner and on numerous occassion have almost been hit by a driver who blatantly disregards the law. It is really starting to annoy me, so drivers please obey the law and yield to pedestrians before sombody gets hurt.

My husband has been hit by a car several (yes, several) times because of idiots who don't yield. I think a couple of them were in Eugene, too.
