Run-in with joggers
I was going to let this article go, but I felt the need to express how close I came to hitting two joggers in a half hour’s time this morning. First, I had a green light at the corner of Oakwood Avenue and Thruston Boulevard. The first of three men jogged right in front of my van with earphones on. He seemed as if he did not look at his crosswalk signal (which was obviously DO NOT WALK). The second “gentleman” jogger waved me on and proceeded to use common sense and jog behind my van.
Next, trying to make a right hand turn at Beverly Place and Far Hills Avenue at 8:30 a.m. (heavy traffic that time of morning), a woman jogger almost ran in front of me, hit the top of my van with her hand and screamed “Hey, watch it, you should be looking both ways,” and continued jogging. I had the right of way. I was in shock. I almost ran this woman over. First I said, “Oh, my God, are you alright?” I’m so sorry and continued to express my apologies. I am a cautious driver and I was shaken up that I almost ran someone over.
Can we all be aware of each other - joggers, bikers, drivers, skaters, skateboarders? Many times I’ve seen joggers in the street with earphones on. Is there a law against this? Drivers are prohibited to wear ear devices. I walk a lot too, but use common sense and common courtesy.
Oh my God, I still can’t believe I almost ran somebody over today.
