Walkers would help themselves by observing sensible rules

We need to work harder to maintain Pittsburgh as a top-ranked city for “walkability.” A good place to start would be with pedestrians respecting the rules of the road to help avoid accidents with vehicles. If there are “Walk/​Don’t Walk” signals at a given crosswalk, then cars and trucks do not go straight or left nor do they turn right on red when the white “All Walk” indication is given for people to cross diagonally or any other direction. In return, so that traffic does not get backed up at intersections and so that people do not have to be confronted by large automobiles, pedestrians should not cross when cars are supposed to have the right of way.
