We see them everywhere, directing us through traffic and telling us what to do. Often times, the signs are there for our own safety and protection. Aren't we expected to respect them, even if there is no clear and present danger?
As a runner, I encounter street signs all the time. For the most part, I'm a goody-two-shoes type...I follow the rules and obey the protocol. However, if I'm out and about on foot, I am sometimes tempted to do things my way and at my convenience....Which begs the question:
Do most runners think they're exempt from obeying the signs?
What about the proverbial Stop sign? How many runners actually stop at a stop sign if nothing else is coming at them? I would venture to guess a big, whopping ZERO.
Sure, it says Road Closed to Thru Traffic, but does that include people on foot or just those in vehicles? If there's plenty of clearance "alongside" the road, technically you're not actually "on" the road, correct?
