These type of crossings are quite irritating. I call them “cow herd block crossings” since motorbikes will go as a group to block oncoming traffic. I will let the traffic go by first before crossing a street. If it is crowded, it is better to continue down the road and turn back at a traffic light.
Yes, I saw this lady crossing so I was prepared. Yes, I stopped at the last minute since I saw her. She actually had plenty of room but I still enjoyed the classic “stare down” from her. 🙂
