Death wish?

This is an open question to anyone who jaywalks at night, in the rain, all dressed in black: Do you have a death wish?

This is an open question to anyone who jaywalks at night, in the rain, all dressed in black:  Do you have a death wish?

I was driving north on Bourquin when I saw something out of the corner of my eye. The man was wearing a dark jacket, pants and hat, ensuring that there was the utmost likelihood no one would see him in time to avoid hitting him.

He was crossing just before a corner, just below the crest of a hill. Then, two cars came over the hill and around the bend, side by side.

He was forced to stand on the yellow line as two cars passed on either side of him, inches away.  If he is reading this, I sincerely hope you learned your lesson.
