Umm, no, it's you who fails at contextual comprehension.
The idea that a pedestrian has to cross in a marked crossing in every situation is a stupid one, and people who espouse it are both stupid and ignorant. As stated in my quotation above, in several states a pedestrian can cross anywhere at need.
In none of my comments did I say pedestrians are limited to crossing anywhere. I did note, however, that the only places they are granted exclusive Right of Way are in crosswalks. I even made it explicit that when not crossing at cross walks traffic has the exclusive Right of Way in most cases, which does NOT say that a pedestrian is never allowed to cross.
Perhaps you should familiarize yourself with the other comments on this story before you leave comments that prove that you are experiencing verbal diarrhea.
I don't care what you said elsewhere in the comments. I was addressing what you said to me, after you almost seemingly intentionally misconstrued what my post said. All you have done so far is try to weasel your way around every refutation against what you stated wrongly. Admit that you made a mistake and move on.
Anyways, I am done here. Have a good day.
