Tonight around 6PM, on the way home. It’s a two lane street in a suburb, near where I work. Behind me would be one of the local high schools. There are barriers because of sidewalk resurfacing.
Two from Sunday afternoon around 5PM, on the way to visit a friend. The first is from Fuxing Road, a major north/south street, the second a residential street near her apartment building.
