From Where We Sit
Change the mindset by doing something
During the few times I was given the privilege to walk the streets of London, one thing that stuck me the most was the motorists’ discipline when approaching a zebra lane. A Londoner friend of mine explained to me that, by law, a motorist is bound to give way as soon as a pedestrian steps onto the zebra lane to cross. As someone who has been driving a lot here in the Philippines, giving way to pedestrians is not one of the things I think about when driving. Even as a pedestrian, I still think that I have to be extra careful and smart when crossing the street, because motorists do not often give way.
