Angel of the Morning

Thursday, July 31, 2008

Every morning when I go to work, I need to cross a very busy street. It can take several minutes before there's a break in traffic so one can cross without running or dodging vehicles with no intention of stopping or slowing down.

A couple of months ago, this was officially made a pedestian crossing and painted with white stripes that denotes it as such. However, as we know Philippine motorists don't respect pedestrian crossings. So, it didn't really help much.

Then one day, as I was waiting for a break in traffic, this security guard in our office bravely walked in front of the cars with a sign saying STOP. Wonder of wonders, the cars did stop! And I was able to cross without waiting too long or fear of getting sideswiped.

From then on, he was there every morning stopping traffic for pedestrians to cross safely.
