Man lives, thanks to ABS

Got an unexpected downpour this morning and I was traveling to work crossing one of the mega intersections at I-40 and Fayetteville Road. Was just getting ready to cross the bridge when a man from out of no where decides to run across the entire intersection (where no one would ever have a reason to cross) against oncoming traffic with a green light. Hit the brakes hard and after much pumping and metering from the ABS with the rain slicked roads the man lived to see another day. He just glanced at me and kept right on running. I don't think he was entirely aware of what the hell was going on (or ever will).

Yike! Hate when that happens. It's a scary feeling.

I question the sound mindedness of anyone that would choose to try and walk/run across one of the SPUI intersections (check out Concurrent Opposing Left Turns).

I hate people. I wish they would all stay off MY roads.....
