Picture this. A bright sunny day. A pedestrian standing at the roadside waiting to cross. Often cars will stop and drivers will even call cheerily out of the windows that it is OK to cross. Everyone is all smiles.
Now, take the same roadside in the pouring rain. The pedestrian is confronted by a continuous stream of traffic, travelling at speed and not noticing that they are driving through water which is soaking said pedestrian.
So, here’s a plea to all you motorists. I know its horrible for you. Visibility is poor and your wipers are going ten to the dozen and not being very effective. Other drivers are doing idiotic things whilst trying to beat the traffic and the rain. But spare a thought for the pedestrian at the roadside … at least you are in the dry.
