Crossing the road

According to The Miami Herald, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, is asking pedestrians to try a new way to safely cross a Boulevard: Step into the crosswalk. Make eye contact with the oncoming driver. And then wave a neon orange flag helpfully provided by the city. It’s a test project to see if they improve traffic safety. The flags are a new concept in South Florida but they have been tried in other U.S. cities, although two of these communities later abandoned them as useless. For example, after three years, the Seattle Department of Transportation dropped the program claiming that "people kept stealing the flags" and that they didn’t notice a marked impact from the program.
