How not to do pedestrian crossings


Crossing
Originally uploaded by Elsie esq..
This crossing is on Brighton sea front by East Street. It is a perfect example of how Brighton's traffic engineers make life hard for pedestrians.

* The waiting time is too long.
* You have to cross the road in two stages, and are made to wait in the pig pen in the middle.
* When you have crossed the road you also have to cross the cycle lane, but this is not controlled by the traffic lights so you step right into the path of fast-moving cyclists.

Wonderful.
