The one time we almost did get run down it reminded me of Cincinnati. Someone came flying out of a parking garage only looking one way because nobody in their right mind would be walking on a sidewalk. I glanced at their plates as the went past, Washington, so they have mentality of the rest of the country. Other than that it was kind of amazing how quiet it was, none of the car horns you hear from frustrated drivers in Cincinnati.
All in all pretty cool.
