    For some reason the drive to survive doesn't exist in pedestrians. Especially for those who cross the highways UNDERNEATH highway crossing bridges.

    I know that road. They pop out of the long grass on the centre island and there is no time to react. As sad as it is, my sympathy lies with the driver that has to live with that image.
