    After my parked truck was rear ended by a teenager playing with his radio, I stopped crossing behind and always went to the front. Even if you manage to back step far enough not to get pinned between, shards of plastic and glass fly like bullets in every direction. Kid hit the truck so hard it totally tore off his quarter panel, but all that p1000 did was rock against its brakes. Fortunately I was on the front porch of the house when it hit, otherwise safest place to be would have been at the front of the truck where it would have shielded me from flying debris.

    I hate that rule.

    I have never had a near miss using the diamond method up front. Ever.

    I cant say the same about crossing in back.

    Poop Head Lovin' every minute of it!

    What exactly is the "diamond method"?
  15. Boywondr

    Boywondr The truth never changes.

    Where you throw a diamond necklace into the middle of the road and when the women drivers stop traffic to grab it you safely cross the road.Screenshot_20190924-220552_Google.jpg

    How common are seizures? You only hear about them when people are driving. It's quite the excuse.
    You don't hear about them at casinos or waiting at the buffet to eat Or for other professions. When's the last time a pilot had a a seizure and crashed a plane? Or a train conductor. These wacko drivers need to be banned or tested yearly at 65 yrs and up

    Banned at 65-sure why not. Then you can come drive me around. I hope you can drive a motorcycle and a straight stick.

    Walk far enough in front to see and be seen around the car. Your walkpath is an angle, hence they used the term 'diamond'.

    Not really allowed anymore so it isnt taught

    But Im a rebel..
