I get the resentment and hostility people have towards upwardly mobile tech workers. But I think it's misplaced. They didn't build/renovate high end apartment complexes and business spaces. Developers did that to draw tech workers in and to push current residents out due to make $$$. Tech workers didn't force your landlord to raise the rent at your same shitty apartment. Your landlord does that because he/she can, to make $$$.

Let's take a step back and look at who's really profiting from this situation.

911 can forward you to the sobering center. The sobering center staff will go to the person and assess whether they need medical attention or offer to take them to the sobering center. Either way, good idea to help that person get to a safer place.

I perceive crossing Pike using a crosswalk as more dangerous than walking along closed sidewalk. On Bellevue Ave right now there are two closed sidewalks a couple blocks away from each other on opposite sides of the street. There is no way to walk down Bellevue Ave without jaywalking.

You can use clove oil for the worst smells (necrotic/dead tissue).

Enough with the pedestrians vs. drivers. All pedestrians at at risk of getting hit by a car, not just joggers. It's unrealistic for all pedestrians to wear bright colors and reflective lights all the time. It's also unrealistic for every driver to be aware of every pedestrian all the time. Instead of fighting about who is at fault, we should put pressure on the City of Seattle to modify our roadways to promote pedestrian safety (better lighting, bright signage, flashing lights, all pedestrian walk intersections, etc).

Your strategy is a great, if your goal is to accidentally hit pedestrians, bikes, and other cars. Instead of stewing in your sense of injustice, did you ever take a second to consider the logic behind traffic laws and our built environment? I hope you never move to Capitol Hill.

Doing rolling stops is a great way to hit pedestrians. Fuck you.
