The driver didn't do it right then.

You're supposed to look left, then right, then left again!

Raymond's method is the one I was taught at an early age when crossing the street - and if I'm going to use that method to save my buttocks from getting creamed by a car, the least I can do is follow the same procedure to keep me from harming others.
