pedi

noun; clipping
A pedestrian As I was crossing the street, two men on bicycles quickly cut in front of me as the first man yelled to the second man, “Watch out for the pedi!” The cropped version of the word pedestrian was probably used because he spoke in a hurry and simply saying ‘pedi’ was faster than saying the whole word ‘pedestrian’.
 
watch out for the pedi!
