Distracted Pedestrian: “I was two inches away from being hit by a Metrobus. When I chased after the bus, the driver explained that I didn’t look both ways (I was focused on carrying heavy groceries and keeping my skirt from flying up). The driver was very nice about it – she even gave me a hug. I was reminded that being alive is wonderful and amazing, despite stresses and difficulties. Pedestrians and vehicles, please watch out for each other!”
