Pelican Crossing


How to use a pelican crossing

Push the button on the control panel and wait for the lights to change to the green man. Cross the road.

How not to use a pelican crossing

  1. Walking past the button and standing on the edge of the pavement waiting for the lights to change.
  2. Texting/making a phone call but not actually pressing the button, then waiting for the lights to change.
  3. Having your whole group of family/friends huddle around the control panel but not actually pressing the button, then waiting for the lights to change.
  4. Leaning on the control panel but not actually pressing the button, then waiting for the lights to change.
  5. Pushing a penny into the recess where the button is so that nobody can push the button, and everybody has to wait for somebody else to come to the other side of the road (and hopefully not do any of numbers 1-4).
  6. Generally acting as though the lights will change by the power of your own will and not by pushing the sodding button.

While we’re on the subject, why does the green man look like he’s mincing?

Review: Useful, but it only takes one moron to ruin it for everybody (such is life).
