typical crosswalk

closeup of crosswalk2.jpg

The crosswalks here have metal on both sides, I guess to help blind people to know the borders of the crosswalk. Smaller streets tend to be one way and almost all crossings have a pedestrian walk/don't walk sign with audio signals to help blind people know when they can cross and also so peds know when the light is about to change (the beeps slow down).
