Pedestrian walk/don't walk are low on my radar right now.

I stopped using zebra since they seemed more appropriate for a crossing in
England than where I live in the US. Crossing=marked/unmarked the only
thing I see where I map them.

BTW - I believe in the US hitting a pedestrian in a marked crossing is
illegal most everywhere. In some cities, drivers seem to believe they have
the right of way over pedestrians, even if they are in a marked crossing.

In another country I've spent some time in, cars definitely have the right
of way over pedestrians.
