3000 pounds vs 100-200 pounds


As I drove home today from picking up my son, I saw a car turning left, quickly followed by a car turning right - both of which almost hit a man clearly in the crosswalk.  This occurred at Wedgewood and Hillsboro - the cars were both turning West onto Wedgewood from Hillsboro.  The pedestrian threw up his hands once followed  literally by seconds later throwing up his hands again.

This is not ok Nashville.

Pedestrians, particularly in the crosswalk, have the right-a-way.  Please be respectful.  Give them ample room.
