How many times have you actually SEEN a Pedestrian Crosswalk?
virtually every one in town is covered in grime, grease and parked vehicles to the point where you dont see it till your on it ......... and that's in good visibility :evil:


BTW how many pedestrians have you seen jaywalking 10 - 20 metres along from a pedestrian crosswalk [-X
