Don’t always stop for pedestrians

This is just a friendly reminder to please not stop for pedestrians when there isn't a crosswalk, especially on a four-lane street. 

I understand that it's coming from a kind place, I totally see that. But it is so dangerous for the pedestrian. You may see them wanting to cross but the person who's coming up beside you won't be able to see that until it's too late and until that pedestrian is walking out in front of them. 

That vehicle beside you has very limited vision and if it's not a crosswalk, unfortunately most people won't be looking out for pedestrians. 
People drive up and down these residential streets anywhere from 50 to 100 km/h. It just isn't always enough time to react unfortunately.
