the guy with the cam should have moved slightly right to block the traffic... he just stood there waiting for something to happen... non-nice individual !

I liked McGuffins point, but it doesn`t always have to have a negative side.

... And then he was ticketed for "impeading the flow of traffic"

Could we rein in the racism a little? The British are idiots and the Americans are idiots. It would be an act of idiocy to constantly restate this- oh. I see.

If she can walk that fast while just holding his hand, why was she being so slow with the walker/cart thing?

My reason for offering it @PinkRhoid!
I think it happens a lot, but rarely gets noticed... human kindness that is.

It did not take two people to help her out it took only one. Besides would cynics prefer if some horrific case of traffic congestion be attributed to ONE old lady?

Give me a break.

And really, it was nice to see, and was refreshing even if it was just one man doing what many others should have already been decent enough to do.

I hate to be a MacGuffin but I, too, found it more disturbing that out of all those people only one tried to do anything to help her including dash cam man who until the guy got out was continually creeping up on her.

Of course I am not bigoted enough to turn it into some kind of "North American" issue. For example I read an article where a man fed a homeless old woman in an Asian country and everyone was focusing on what a great deed he had done and no one was paying attention to the fact that the countries attitude toward the poor had to be so poor for this act of kindness to stand out so much. All the same I didn`t see any MacGuffins trolling around in the forums insisting on what a failed Asian attitude it was to commend one man on what everyone should be more apt to do. It certainly makes me think it`s not based on your skin color or where you are from.

Well I thought that was small but nice thing, no matter what MacSandVagina has to say about it.

@LordJim: Doesn`t work like that everywhere. I got hit by a car in France thinking I had right of way on a zebra crossing. Turns out they see it as "Drive Faster".

Shipman had a Blue Peter baddge? Really? Damn, that`s wrong on so many levels.

Anyway, she was on the crossing. Here in UK if someone is actually on the crossing when the lights change they still have priority. I don`t know how that works in the US but I would imagine it would be the same. Because it`s obvious; don`t drive over a crossing when someone is on it, whatever the bloody light says.

If so, then every bastard who drove over that crossing committed an offence. Hope they get tickets.

Yeah. Pablo Escobar built football stadiums, and Harold Shipman had a Blue Peter badge.

You keep on seeing that silver lining, big guy. ;-)

No he didn`t. He could have changed lanes and gone around her.
But instead, he got out and helped her. I am a jaded old
bastard but even I can accept that once in a while someone
does something nice. Not often, but sometimes.

A guy helped a little old lady, is that really so hard for your dry, hardened cold heart to believe?[/quote]
Only a North American could think that drivers screaming through a pedestrian crossing as an old lady was trying to cross was somehow actually a positive thing. A guy *had to* help an old lady do something that she should have been able to do easily on her own, but was unable to because of the vast majority of selfish bastards around her; is that really so hard for your selfish, parochial, blinkered American heart to perceive?

I agree with MacG.

Also the cynic in me says he only got out to help `cos she wasn`t moving fast enough for him.

@misterkleen: Welcome fellow Canadian to IAB!

It`s true, these sorts of things happen a lot in Canada, in the rest of the world they seem to be rarer.
I think it`s just that bad news gets more attention, eh? There`s WAY MORE good folks out there than bad!

Actually, if anything, this video damages my faith in humanity further. Whilst one decent driver (two if you count the person with the camera) did what they were supposed to do and stopped at a pedestrian crossing, the vast majority just drove right through, even whilst that one decent person was assisting the old lady. Christ, would it have been too much to ask to wait until the pedestrian had crossed before cutting round traffic and resuming your everso-important journeys, you jerks?

The fact that this video is noteworthy further erodes my faith in humanity.

My faith in humanity is well and truly broken beyond repair.

This video does start to tape the pieces back together, though.
