Pedestrians walking in the road when there is a clear shoveled sidewalk should be given a ticket

Yes they should, and there are laws on the books against this but the cops won't bother. Its not just in Utica either.

It is also against the law to walk in the road or on the shoulder with your back to oncoming traffic. You're supposed to walk facing traffic for your own safety, another thing I see a lot of people not doing.

Police are afraid to stop certain ethnic groups. Plus, once you open the car door, it's cold out there.

I especially dislike the people who seem to intentionally block the road even though they see you coming. Many a time I just wanted to run those people over.

Goes for people in parking lots too. They turn their face and see you behind them but never move over.

And I call idiots who walk with their backs to traffic..."organ donors"...
