Dear stupid Provo pedestrian:

I just thought you should know that, if you're getting off the bus at an intersection and the bus you need to transfer to is already waiting at the light, you missed it.  You will not make it across the street to catch the other bus before the light changes, and you will have to suffer the bitter experience of watching the bus you needed pull away right in front of you, and you'll have to wait an undisclosed amount of time for the next one.

It is bitter.

But it is no reason for you to further complicate things by trying to run across State Street in the middle of traffic, dodging cars and almost losing your balance on the median, which was not meant to be stood on.  And all of it about twenty feet away from a crosswalk with perfectly functioning "WALK" signals.

Y'know, like this one.

Next time you need to desperately run across the street, you should do so at the crosswalk.  You'll still miss the bus, but at least that way you'll miss the bus without also endangering your life fourteen times.
