I don't know if it's everywhere but now in most street I see, pedestrians have buttons where they can stop all 4 sides of the road so that they can
walk freely. Gone are the pedestrian lights if no one pushes the button, so stupid people think they can't walk if there is no little pedetrian
The idea isn't that bad, some really need assistance to safely cross the street but I see normal, healthy and young people use this button when I
believe they don't need it at all. After a press of the button, all 4 ways on the street come to a complete stop thus putting life on hold for
douzens of drivers because ONE person wanted to cross the street.
I have always been someone that doesn't like to waste other's time, in fact even when I was a kid I never used the school crossing guard's services
because I noticed drivers waiting only for me, something which I found deaply annoying. So, just like I do today, I cross the street when it's safe
and that I don't disturb traffic.
Are people really that stupid that they can't cross the street without resorting to stop everyone at the same time? Sometimes, I see people pressing
the button BEFORE EVEN checking if the button was really needed...so while they already crossed the street, I arrive seconds later and the drivers
probably think that I'm the moron that pressed the button. Then I shamefully cross the street and I feel like a retard.
I really really really hate the new lights system and the monstrous time waster that it is.
