My Milanese Pet Hates - Part 8

More from the The Dangerous Life of a Pedestrian in Milan.

Cyclists who go down one way streets the wrong way.

Around where I live there are a lot of one way streets (including the street I live on), and too many times now a cyclist has nearly gone straight into me when I've been walking to or from work. I've always got my earphones in, which means I don't hear them. Yes, I know I should pay more attention, but seriously, what are you doing going down the street the wrong way?? It's not going to end well, especially not with the way Italians drive...

That's one prob we don't have in Modica - there are hardly any cyclists as they would get knocked off the road!

Hi Welshcakes! I'm amazed there are as many up here as there are - it's dangerous enough as a pedestrian!
