There are 2 major problems:
a) It looks like a New Zealand pedestrian crossing - I have to fight every urge not to just step out onto the crosswalk.
b) I also have had years of looking right, left, right ingrained into my system. So, as I step out into the fake pedestrian crossing - I am also looking the wrong way.
c) As I step out on to the road, while not looking - the driver of the car about to hit me will not stop. This is because they will be watching TV while driving and will not notice me until I am smushed on their dashboard.
These are the reasons you should not be suprised when I am hit by a car. I am just saying.
Here are a couple of pictures I took over the weekend. The first is of beautiful light at a school we visited for "Hello GEC" on Friday. It also features a balloon sword and I love balloon swords.
The second is from a subway station with an amazing magazine cover of Obama with a broccoli head. Why does Obama have a broccoli head? Who knows, but it's cool.
