Pedestrian in Industrial Park Causes Traffic Jam

Winnipeg – Motorists were tense earlier Thursday afternoon when they discovered a pedestrian walking on the side of the road in an industrial park known for not having sidewalks. Three cars stopped until the pedestrian jumped into a snow bank. Traffic then began to move without incident.

One motorist, when asked for a comment, said, “What was she doing, walking on the road? No one should walk anywhere. It’s crazy to go somewhere without a car.”

Later, the pedestrian was overheard muttering to herself, “get off your fat asses and stop burning fossil fuels, people.”

I think that was me! kidding, but I do walk on an industrial sidewalk free street to and from the bus stop each morning. because of the snow, i HAVE to walk on a bit of the road, and people are so rude! They are flying by with no regard - once a van was driving so close to me he hit my knitting tote! grrr Winnipeg drivers are the WORST! its even more fun when i ride my bike to work!
