Hi, this blog started out in 2006 with some shootings on 6th Avenue near 47th Street. What happened since then, did the problems go away? How about a follow up on the safety of that area

I tried these lights out today. They make the same design mistake that the old ones did. When the count down is on, the "do not walk" (hand) symbol flashes. Drivers making right turns into the crosswalk assume, as they have done to me, that this means the pedestrian should not be in the crosswalk and they aggressively make their turns. It has happened to me on more than one occasion at La Grange Rd and Ogden. The signals would be far better and more understandable if the "walk" (figure) symbol flashed with the count down instead of the "do not walk symbol (hand)."
