It is dangerous enough for pedestrians when they cross a street at the intersection. Many people have been seriously injured and even killed even though they are in crosswalks. It is even more dangerous to cross in the middle of the block, particularly if you are 59 years old, have MS, using a walker, and you are doing this at 10:30 at night.
It is time to play the jingle that I recall being broadcast in the 1960s.
Go here to play it.
