Walk/Don’t Walk

More on this subject from one reader, Kevin Orlin Johnson, with this grim tale from the Dr Pepper state:

“Here in Dallas we have the old-fashioned international-style pedestrian signals–little iconic walkers and upraised hands, but painted on lenses–not LEDs or anything like that.

“The problem is that in this neighborhood the gunplay, the loose ladders swinging from speeding fire trucks, and garden-variety vandalism have broken away many of the lenses, leaving us with a plain white light for “walk” and a plain white light for “don’t walk”.

“We just go when we can.”
