This letter is intended for the driver who leaned on his horn while I was crossing 56th Street just after 6 p.m. on Tuesday, May 28.
I am in my 70s so your horn did indeed startle me, which I am sure was your intention. Congratulations!
FYI: I entered the crosswalk only after the walk signal appeared and was half way through when you leaned on the horn. Another, much younger pedestrian (wearing ear phones so missed loud horn) had also entered on the walk signal.
At that corner, the left turn signal comes on before the walk signal. In case you are unaware, red seconds on the signal at any intersection are intended to let the pedestrian know how long they have to complete crossing the street safely. I still had seconds left to complete the cross.
You need to refresh your knowledge of traffic signals or quit driving before you injure someone.
