Traffic light

to divert a bit from our amazing, exciting, fancy new apartment, a picture taken from the car, in the center of boston. as mentioned before, here everyone thinks: i am first, no matter what. and see, the lights are green for the car, yet all pedestrians just cross the road. this happens all the time!! everyone just crosses (sometimes also cars), paying no attention at all, no, just going! even so a car is coming at full speed. even so the car is honking... people just walk, and at their choosen speed. really, its unbelievable...

These are just tourists in big flocks (they are annoying whereever you go). And the pedestrians always rule. You are stretching it ;)

defenitely not!! u should watch the street i have to cross each morning when leaving the green line. i think 90% of the people running out of the green line totally ignore the lights and just cross the street while its in fact green for the cars. already many times there were some near accidents..

ah, and i do not think pedestrians rule. i think the traffic lights should rule, otherwise you can better omit them, i think that would be safer in many cases...
