Pedestrian Behavior

My quick comparison of how pedestrians in a couple major cities behave – at least based on what I have seen…

Tel Aviv – The “Walk” vs “Do Not Walk” signs are commands from God.  Thou shalt not disobey them or lightning shall rain down on you and your family immediately.

San Francisco – Fairly obedient when it comes to street signage – generally follow the rules and give way to cars/taxis when appropriate.  Any relation to the almost non-stop smell of “weed” on the streets?  Not sure – needs further research.

Chicago – This one is simple – “ZERO F**KS GIVEN”.  Enough said there.

As always, I welcome your feedback, comments, slander, etc…



  • Isn’t this the truth. Whether in a crosswalk or not they think you should give way despite where they are deciding to cross. High school students are the worst. Hit me if you dare.

    Boulder….Walk with abandon, do not even look. Cars and everyone and everything will stop because I am the most important thing in my world and NEVER EVER attempt to hurry.
