The amount of absolute driver ignorance I've witnessed today is shocking. Theres some people on walks literally being drowned and knocked over with that 15ft wave of water you just put in motion..
Edmonton is the worst city I've ever been to for being a pedestrian. Drivers are completely oblivious to them, or if they are aware it's to race someone through an intersection before they can start going through a crosswalk. Drivers turning right in Edmonton routinely never look right and pull in front of people with a walk signal.

If it's not that it's sidewalks that just end for no reason. North end is notoriously bad for this. Walk 20 minutes and then you're just faced with a ditch on the other side of the road. South end has no crosswalks, so a person is forced to walk a kilometer out of their way just to cross a road.
