Pedestrian crossing lights are no joke
I think the city should just go ahead and come clean to residents and tourists about the pedestrian crossing lights downtown. They don’t work! I’ve watched poor pedestrians standing at the corner of Carteret and Craven streets for ages just a pushin’ those buttons and the lights never change. Usually, they just give up and take their chances crossing against the light. I’ve seen this at Carteret and Bay streets too. I think those buttons are just there to look good but aren’t really connected to anything at all. I guess the joke’s on us … NOT LAUGHING!
