mumble going home last night, usual sydney traffic, 3 lane road heading south, lights are red, 2 right lanes are packed. I'm slowly coming down the left lane as people will generally just swerve out in front of you, so I'm buffering, and riding slowly. It is a bit wet, of course, so I'm being extra-cautious like. Light turns green as I reach about 10m before the light, I'm doing about 10km/h and I'm in 2nd, but can't see the right side of the intersection because there are a bunch of vans and trucks in the middle lane so I cover the brakes and coast slowly towards the intersection. Pedestrian steps out right in front of the bike from the right (she was walking across the road, against a red light, in front of three lanes of stopped traffic as the light went green), I brake, skid a little in the wet, heart leaps into my mouth, I stop without dropping it, swear loudly, she looks at me says "sorry", and she keeps going. Not only do you have tradies and taxis in Sydney trying to kill you, but you have suicidal pedestrians who cross the road at the wrong time, in the wet. Nice.
