As a pedestrian, I recognize the fact that I have the right of way generally.
However, I fee like a jerk if I step off the curb without waiting for a driver to slow slightly and wave or acknowledge me somehow. In situations where the driver will have to slow down whether I wait for acknowledgement or not, I always wait for the wave.
Whats more annoying, boldly assuming that drivers will accept your right of way, or making them wait a couple of extra seconds to wave you past?
