Bend, Oregon


Drivers in Bend Oregon wait for the pedestrian after he's well out of the way.

They want you to know that they've waited for you. If you take the initiative and won't be to the other curb soon enough, they'll slow down with malicious decency, and accelerate in judgement after they're "able" to go again. That they didn't have to decelerate is obvious to anybody who understands trajectory. But it's compulsory, within city limits, according to a powerful and unwritten social rule.
