Why do pedestrians just assume that because car lanes in the city are banked up in the morning, it's ok to cross. Even if you're also crossing a bike lane. I bowled an older woman over this morning on Collins St. She crossed the street, cut through idle cars and walked right in to the bike lane without turning to look... even when I yelled out. I hit her quite hard, hard enough to throw her to the ground. Admittedly I was more concerned about the damage to my bike than her. After the initial shock I went to offer some assistance and she got up by herself and began abusing the shit out of me. Like I was meant to look out for her blah blah.
I asked her - if the bike lane was banked up would she just cut through that and walk out in to the car lane without turning to look? She then had nothing more to say to me. :-D
