Crossing where there isn't a regulated crossing is very dangerous especially in this area. Going to a corner where crossing is regulated takes time but then the pedestrian has rights. When crossing between designated areas, the traffic has the right of way. It is usually hard to walk to some designated crossing but there is one near-by this area. Pedestrians need to plan their walks with safe areas to cross. air course cars don't usually yield to pads even when they have the right of way. Young people can fly across 6 lanes but as we age, things don't work as well especially when a car is coming toward us. Don't assume you can be seen. and swing a bag at on coming traffic.
