Do some drivers think that "Yield to Pedestrians" signs at crosswalks are there as decorations or something? ?

They clearly see that I'm like a third of the way crossing the street and they just keep going.

    1/3 of the way across.?  The road is what, 60 feet wide and you are 20 feet across and their car is like 8 feet wide. So 40-8 is 32 feet of space.Just HOW FAT ARE YOU?

    You are not interfering with them nor they with you.  You do the dance of the Butterfly...and bypass each other with room to spare.

    If you were over half way over, then the car would yield to pedestrian but you were nowhere near the ball park.

    I doubt that. Problem is, most people think that what they're doing is more important than what other people are doing.

    They might if they bothered to keep their eyes on the road instead of on their electronic devices.

    And the pedestrians that just walk out in front of vehicles?

    By law, drivers only are obliged to exercise due diligence to avoid striking or endangering pedestrians crossing in the crosswalk. Drivers are not required to remain static after you are no longer in their path, and by law pedestrians are obliged to not linger or intentionally impede traffic, and that includes forbidding them to stop or turn back. Pedestrians are also forbidden to enter the street while approaching  traffic is close enough to pose danger to them. Read all of VC21950.

    Let them clip you slightly and fall down. Easiest $40 grand you ever made.

    How would we know what "some drivers think"?

    In the US driving licenses are handed out like candy. I haven't seen any driver acting like that since moving to Norway, whereas in the US it happened at least once every 10 minutes on the road.

    They are just selfish or don't understand English. If the signs read 'Give way to pedestrians' they'd understand!
