Unhappy Jaywalk

Did I have any skills in crossing road and pedestrian safety when I was in school? I wonder how I am alive. I think in a period as late as 8th-9th standard or even later, atleast once I didn't care to look sideway. I was probably a jaywalker. It must be a miracle that I survived for so many years. Or could it be that I am already dead and the rest of the life is actually a long illusion? Like it happened to Bruce Willis in 'Sixth Sense' (movie)? Dukh ki baat ye hai ki mere papa bhi aise hi hai. Woh tou isliye zinda hai kyon ki 1960s ke end tak Bharat mein gadiyan na ke barabar thi.

If you died and no one know that you are dead, then its possible you are alive.

Re: Jaywalk

Talking about jaywalking, saala idhar hamara small town mein people just walk across the road without looking left or right. Narry ena glance, I tell ya. And it is even more scary if there is snow and ice on the roads and you see someone walking across with head held high. You gotta do all your best to slow down your vehicle without slipping and sliding into the person

And worst are these ladies who will just walk onto the road and open their car doors. Saala pehle hi chotta chotta road, upar se traffic from both sides. How do they expect you to stop their cars in time to prevent from crashing into their car doors

Come on friends!

Share your memories and experience. How were you at crossing roads? Were you good or were you bad?

Re: Jaywalk

Does law prevent passersby from helping accident victims? I have seen it movies and have also heard about it. Is it because of culture or legal hassles?

There was a time when Landyabhai was active, members indulged in philosophical discussions. Anyway...

The law requires you to stay with the accident victims until help arrives. If talking in Indian context, if people are not stopping, it probably because they are afraid of the future hassles.

Yes. Indian police find it difficult to sympathise with the victims. Empathising with the criminals comes to them naturally; must have to do with inherent corrupt culture within. Indian police sees to it that good Samaritan regrets coming to the aid of victims. Sad truth.

I had an accident leaving a lifelong stitch mark on my forehead. I don’t know how close it was. From then on my family started to be careful with me. Otherwise the danger to my life perhaps would have become greater.

So, the culprit is jaywalking. Not Coconut trees.Or did a coconut fall on the head while Jaywalking.

Coconuts fall from trees unexpectedly, suddenly and abruptly. It can cause serious and even fatal accidents.

Did it take an actual road accident for the family to learn road safety?
