Courtesy

One of the things I really appreciate about Nova Scotia is the extensive and thorough courtesy the drivers show for pedestrians.  It never ceases to amaze me!  This evening was dark (at 4), foggy and rainy.  I approached intersections downtown with due caution.  And in each and every (of 9) cases, drivers ground to a halt, flashed their lights and made sure that I got the right of way.

This is curious behaviour for a pedestrian who has lived with the oblivious in Los Angeles and the threatening in New England.  Drivers who notice pedestrians? And give them way? It’s like a fairy tale!
