Please Don't Hit Me With Your Car

A Quick Note to Drivers Out There:

Please come to a full and complete stop when approaching the pedestrian crossing the street, legally, at the cross walk. While you may know that you aren't going to hit her, she does not feel so confident as she eyes your Range Rover rolling in her direction at a speed that would still hurt on impact. Let me remind you that she is less than 1/10th the size of your car, and considerably less durable. I know stopping in front of the crosswalk means approximately 10 seconds you cannot devote to Your Life, but at that moment the pedestrian is fearing for Her Life. So please, just stop the car for a moment.

Just take down their license plate numbers. I'm not sure what you can do with that information, but when someone threatens me, I like to know who they are.

Since this seems to happen virtually every time I try to cross the street near my house these days, I would wind up with something like a collection of numbers...
