Brake for pedestrians!

Philly drivers tend to be pretty crazy, not unlike DC, NYC or Boston drivers. However, coming from DC, I'm a bit spoiled in the sense that even if cars honk at me, I know they will begrudgingly stop. Not in Philly. Today, while running an errand with a friend, we scooted behind a car, and the car almost backed into us without even noticing. In DC (where we both were raised) the car would have laid on the horn, but would have stopped. We hightailed it out of the road, shrieked, and looked back to realize that the driver had no idea he had almost hit us.
