Don’t Walk…or Think

Walk Sign

These walk signs are on many busy intersections across San Diego. To cross the street pedestrians are supposed to push the button to change the traffic signals. The result: pedestrian controlled traffic signals causing traffic jams and wasting gas across the city. Even worse, many pedestrians have so surrendered common sense that they walk blindly into an intersection because the walk light signaled them to walk.

This logic reminds of an event at the San Diego Zoo a few years ago when a visitor climbed into the bear exhibit and got mauled.  When asked why he climbed into the exhibit, his response was “they motioned me in.”

A little common sense would replace this expensive and wasteful San Diego project.

Have we become so dependent on Government Regulation that we can’t cross the street safely on our own?
