Hello everyone !! i have to say im a little Pi$@ off right now because i was almost hit by 2 different cars racing the yellow light with in 10 minutes of each other !!! and this just happened about a half hour ago ! so i decided to take matters into my own hands and i will be Filming my intersection where i was almost killed 2 different times in then minutes this is my Facebook post i made : Well i am officially pis@ off with the drivers of this city and have decided to take action i will be filming the intersection by my house and posting it here on my Facebook page as well as you tube to show how dangerous this intersection really is and the aggressive drivers in THIS CITY and also i will be sending the video into the city government i want something done about it !!! i walked to the store , i waited for my light to cross and what happens a woman slams on her breaks and almost slides into me ! if that wasn't bad enough coming back i had to cross the same intersection and again i waited for my turn to cross and when it was my turn i started to walk and then a man this time almost hit me by about 2-3 feet away , the woman behind me screamed because she thought i was hit by the car !!!! WHAT IS IT WITH PEOPLE WHO RUSH THE LIGHTS , im tired of it and the lack of policing on this issue and government action !! SOMEBODY is going to be killed at this intersection !! and if there is nothing done about it i will send the video into the local media I HAVE HAD IT NEVER IN MY LIFE HAVE I ALMOST BEEN HIT BY 2 CARS AT THE SAME INTERSECTION 10 MINUTES APART POLICE & GOVERNMENT DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS !!!! what will the government and police do probably NOTHING because there to busy REVENUE GENERATING but if this gets some attention then maybe just maybe it will make this intersection a little safer for the people who walk across it because i cant say how many times i have seen people almost hit there ONE TIME i even seen a family crossing and the husband was pushing a baby stroller and he was almost hit imagine what would have happened to the baby if it got hit by a car rushing the yellow light its not a matter of IF it will happen BUT WHEN IT WILL HAPPEN sooner or later somebody is going to be killed !!! anyway sorry for my RANT hahaha O-U-C :)

We are just happy it was an almost and not a success. Drivers everywhere can be dangerous, but I find them the most dangerous in Cebu where the cycles go up on the sidewalk and manage to go in between cars and make their own lanes. I almost got hit by one crossing the street because when I made it to the sidewalk I thought I was safe, NOT, some crazy bastard was riding down the sidewalk to avoid the red light so he could make a right turn. I now cross much more carefully and continue to look both ways and even then I got grazed by a car mirror because the car was right next to the side of the road. Now I walk against traffic, but even that is not safe because the cycles go the wrong way sometimes. :)

What you are all forgetting is that we carry the western attitude that pedestrians have the right of way. Here, they do not. Here in Bacolod about 3 years or so ago, I can't find the link sorry, a car grazed a pedestrian with his right mirror. Luckily, the man was not seriously injured. The man who hit him however, sued the victim for damaging his mirror! i don't know how far that case got but it tells you how it is here. Yes it sounds retarded but scary to think you can actually be a victim twice.

yeah i don't blame you lee for walking against traffic and yes thankfully i wasn't hit !! personally i feel safer in the Philippines walking around as CRAZY as that sounds but myself i have come to expect the unexpected there yes there are rules of the road there and as we all know there not adhered to or enforced which brings me back to what i said before EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED !! the problem i have with my local intersection is that the cops will be 40 feet away nailing speeders coming down the hill but not looking out for people crossing the street so in my eyes the city government and the police dont really care about the local population there more involved with REVENUE GENERATION aka ( GIVING TICKETS ) and making the city money ! because as we all know if a person does get hit by a car and hurt there will be trial and the city has to pay for the prosecution and judge so there not making money off that as well if theres jail time they have to house that person which the city also looses on so my point is easy to turn a bling eye as long as the tax collectors are doing there jobs on the street hahaha O-U-C

Hey O-U-C, Maybe they were Filipino drivers....he, he. Joke lang, pare. Anyway I Googled Earth Mississauga,Canadaand it looks like a very modern metropolis. Could it be that certain intersection has a history of pedestrianaccidents? Put your camera on a tripod for a few hours recording and then send it to public works, policeand the city government. Perhaps you're not the only one pissed off by near death experience. I'm glad that you're OK my friend -- JakePS -- place a rocket propelled grenade on your shoulder as you cross the street next time....he, he.
