I'm aware of that. Under the new rules I'm supposed to give way to pedestrians waiting to cross a side road that I'm intending to turn into.
None of which applies in this instance.
I wasn't turning into a side road, and he sure as hell wasn't waiting to cross.
I was travelling along the main road, lights were green as I passed through. He came down a side road (where both traffic and pedestrian lights would have been red if he'd looked), kept on running straight across in front of me without even glancing to his left or right or checking his stride.

Giving way to people crossing at junctions was already in the HC. I was failed for reversing when someone was crossing a junction despite the fact that they were across the junction before I reached it.
Yes it's a stupid thing for them to do. I didn't realise that you was going straight across the junction. As a driver though you have a responsibility to be aware of other road users and react to their actions, including the idiots
Deserves to get squashed.
They run past my house everyday, in the middle of the road, backs to traffic with earphones on. Arrogant tw@ts!
Yes. Brave, or foolish, twats too.
I made one trip into London when I'd spent the day at work in Wyton and had to get to Richmond in order to meet up for a gig. Against my better judgement I went with the sat nav rather than just going around the M25.
Never again. About an hour into the journey, it starts getting dark and people are still walking straight into me from the pavement. You have to assume that every pedestrian is a lemming and then spend all of your time being screamed at by other drivers.
It's absolute madness down there, with people suddenly appearing from between parked cars to cross roads, multi-lane roads with signs swinging you you from one lane to another as you travel along it and cyclists weaving in and out passing on the left or right as their whim takes them and at times one passing one side and another the other. It was chaos.
The A11 was a road I particlarly hated. There seemed to be signs about every 10 yards and you seemed to get swung left and right across the three lanes. It probably isn't too bad if you do it daily but when you did it a couple of times a year like me it seemed like a lunatic had set the road up.
