Vision Zero Quiz #7
Date: Edmonton, July 2, 2016
Encounter: I am looking back at the intersection to see three pedestrians waiting for the walk light to indicate they have the right of way.
Your VisionZero question: How many vehicles don't stop advancing, forcing the pedestrians to dutifully wait, decreasing the already short time they have under cover of the walk signal?
As always, no wagering please.
Here is your answer:
To my untrained eye, three vehicles move from outside the crosswalk to inside the crosswalk while the pedestrian signal shows walk. The east-to-west moving pedestrians are forced to wait, meaning they don't get even halfway across the intersection before the flashing hand appears,
Forced is the word. Enough of this might is right.
Thanks, as always, for playing along.
