Keep Signals Simple

Most intersection signals should be concurrent and quick
  • Jeff Speck


IT CAN BE VERY FRUSTRATING to be a pedestrian in Sydney. Standing at a street corner, you wait while the crossing traffic passes. Then you wait while cars coming at you turn right. Then you wait while cars coming from behind you turn left. Only then do you get the signal to enter the crosswalk, alongside cars traveling parallel to you that are not allowed to turn.
