    Maybe some you who jog can answer this. Why do joggers insist on running in the street and not the perfectly good sidewalk? Not only joggers, lots of just walkers do the same thing. A couple days ago a woman pushing a baby carriage right down the street! Drives me crazy! Today a woman walking and texting almost walked into the front of my truck until I tapped my horn

    Just pretend like you're going to run them over but don't really run them over because that's just a headache and a lot of paperwork. You could always use your horn to you know, make sure they see you... but really you just do it to annoy them.

    There is a guy in my town that rides one of these up
    And down Main Street every night after dark.


    Main Street is also a state highway. MORON

    Maybe. Seeing horizontal bikers roll by on a two man street luge wouldn't surprise me a bit.

    In for hating on these people...

    Especially when there's a sidewalk on both sides of the street....

    I bet they weren't hot. If they were you wouldn't be complaining.

    oldngray nowhere special

    I didn't mind the joggers as much as the people in the hood who would always walk in the middle of the street 3 or 4 abreast just daring anyone to hit them.

    They could get more speed if the guy on top was on his belly.

    To answer the OP's question as a person who runs after work, sidewalks in my area are very uneven, people hang their vehicles over them in driveways, and I want you to see me well ahead of you getting to me and I have to run around aforementioned cars.

    I am forced to run in the dark, I wear a flashing armband, neon shirt, and run against the flow, yet somehow I have to hop on the sidewalk due to someone texting and doesn't see me till the last moment.
