Be aware of where you are

I was just driving on Centre Street and while attempting to take a left on Seaverns Avenue I had to wait while a man and a woman were engaged in a conversation in the crosswalk like they didn't have a care in the world. Even after they saw me they still didn't get out of the way. They finally moved to the left but still remained in the crosswalk engaged in a conversation as I drove by!
