Go play in traffic

I'm in the early stages of a mini-crusade to get a traffic light, or at least an electronic crossing signal, installed at a busy intersection near my house. 

As part of my effort, I decided this morning to start tallying how many cars fail to stop for me after I'm already standing in the crosswalk.

During my two crossings this morning, 14 cars illegally whizzed by while I was standing in the crosswalk with my dogs.

Only two cars stopped for me. Much to my amusement, both were hybrids.

It's too small a sample to reach real conclusion, of course, but maybe drivers of hybrid vehicles really are better people than the rest of us.
