I'm pretty sure the DC TIGER application was for the streetcar.

I was a runner for 41 years. I saw this same sort of behavior from packs of runners or even single runners. They run in front of cars, ignore red lights and don't walk signals, pass people without announcing their presence, etc. This 'holier than thou because I exercise and you don't' attitude is just immature and silly. Whether walking, running, riding a bike, driving a car, just be nice.
