You Really Suck At Stopping

Tomorrow the Laguna Beach Police are doing one of their focus on crosswalk safety efforts where they watch for motorists who make illegal U-turns and fail to yield to pedestrians at intersections that have a history of pedestrian-involved collisions, according to a news release. [Coastline Pilot]

So I wanted to get a picture of a motorist going through a crosswalk while some poor slob is trying to cross the street. Believe me when I say it's too easy. I stopped to talk to a friend and I must have missed 3 or 4 photo opportunities. Then I decided to cross the street myself and BAM here comes a pickup right at me as I'm IN the crosswalk. He just kept going and flew right past me. To make matters worst there was a Laguna Beach Police vehicle right behind the pickup and they stopped but I didn't see them make any effort to go after the pickup once I was clear of the crosswalk. They just traveled down PCH at a normal speed with no flashers. I can only guess that they decided to wait until tomorrow.

Below is the sequence of the event. They're not the best shots, after all I was backing up in fear of my life. Really! In the last photo you can just make out the Laguna Beach Police vehicle.
