Day 152, Wednesday, June 1

This picture is about the traffic lights...not the car in front of me. These lights are at a crosswalk on a busy street. There is a bike/walking trail that crosses the road. There has been a light here for a couple of years and no one seems to pay attention to it. A few months ago, there was a sign posted that states it is Illinois law...if someone is in the crosswalk...all traffic must stop. Sometimes one lane would stop, but not the other 3 lanes. So in the last few weeks...the red lights were added on the long arms hanging over the street. You can see them from a very far distance. Much safer for the walkers and the drivers!

  1. I can't believe people would not stop. Good think they put the red lights in.
