Pedestrians, please exercise caution as you cross the roads. Remember your right-of-way doesn’t always protect you if you’re not obeying the rules of the road.
Drivers, remember you are driving a dangerous motorized vehicle with the potential to hurt people. Don’t selfishly talk on the phone and conduct other unnecessary business while pretending to drive.
