Sentence: She'd seldom seen pedesatrians bare-foot their way through the busy drive-thru (when the store front was nearly empty)! She tersely told him, "No barefoot pedesastrians in the drive thru lane"! Cars behind him honked. The man didn't seem to care. She reluctantly watched him proudly, mechanically, pad his feet onto the busy six-lane road, his soles black with car exhaust. This pedesastrian was even ignoring the red light! AHHHH!

Etymology: From the words pedestrian, ass and disaster. A person who unwisely or unknowingly, travels by foot on vehicle-only routes, often to disastrous consequences.
