Nerys's Milanese Pet Hates - Part 2

Ok, so this's more of an Italian pet hate, but seeing as I'm living in Milan.....

Pedestrian crossings.

The white stripes on the road aren't just there for decoration you know!!!

Though in Italy you could well just think that.....

Would it hurt so much just to stop when there's someone on a crossing, actually in the middle of the road?? It didn't happen this morning, and it never does most mornings. And having to walk to work every day it's really getting annoying now. It's bloody dangerous! Unless a crossing actually has lights indicating when it's safe to cross, I don't trust it one bit. I try as often as I can to follow someone else, safety in numbers, plus the Italians are used to it! Nearly getting run over is not what you need first thing in the morning when you're not quite awake!!
