I like the diagonal crosswalks too – we have a couple near work and I like being able to walk across the diagonal and not having to cross two streets.
There are places around LA – like in Koreatown near the Wilshire/Vermont station – where police do regularly ticket jaywalkers. Well, more accurately, they hand out tickets to people who start crossing after the Don’t Walk (or Hand) sign start to blink. I hate that – I wish they would focus on people who are truly jaywalking and not someone who steps off the curb a second too late. But that’s a whole ‘nother story.
I, too, like the diagonal crosswalks that are found in Old Pasadena, but to be honest, I don’t think they would work well without a simultaneous anti-jaywalking ticketing campaign.
Most pedestrians here don’t seem to care if there is a walk or don’t walk signal as long as the light’s green (sometimes not even that). I think it would be great in certain intersections to help vehicular traffic. I just don’t think that the pedestrians would make the transition easily.
