As I got to about 10 yds away, they turned and briskly took two or three steps out into the road without looking.When a pedestrian walks unwisely, they are a danger to themselves. When a car driver does so, they are a threat to others. I can't see how it's possible for a pedestrian to be as irresponsible as a driver.
