There aren’t any stripes on the road and while these folks look lax in crossing the street, I think it is from years of “dealing” with this particular cross walk and the potential danger that drivers don’t recognize them as walkers.
Some chose to stand on the curb, while others are clearly in the street. Even so, they are almost unrecognizable. Perhaps due to the wideness of the road.
Wow…that takes the cake! I think the cop must have gotten up on the wrong side of the bed. Or perhaps he didn’t get any the night before. OR perhaps he just needed to get his machismo in gear for the day. Poor guy who got ticketed!
Actually, there is a traffic light immediately after the cross walk most drivers want to avoid so they speed by. I filmed this on a fairly light day, right before lunch hour. Can you imagine what it’s like during or right after lunch hour, not to mention immediately after work. Crazy!
Interesting….I don’t think I’ve seen those around?
You’re right about plowing problems. Islands in the middle would also be problematic I suppose.
Another option to ponder.
You’re right about putting pedestrians in harms way when you do obey the law….. when I DO stop, and I ALWAYS do, the cars to the side of me and in back rarely do. You can see the hesitation from walkers in fear for their lives. Thanks for your comments. Hope we can make a difference!
Basi was between $8-$12 for their mussels. I’m telling you, I’ve never seen such HUGE and TENDER mussels. I was amazed! I’ve had them at Lindey’s, GMichaels and elsewhere, but none compare.
Basi urges Valet Parking for $4 but there is plenty of parking on nearby streets. Make your reservations between 5-6 and you are sure to find parking and a great seat. Bon apetite!

I like your suggestions for a much vibrant downtown. Speed bumps would work and a new traffic signal of some sort. Something is better than what exists! I look forward to hearing your ideas, and more importantly sharing them with the people that can actually do a study and implement the changes needed.
Afterall, if Columbus really wants to revitalize downtown, improvements must be made. Foot traffic is key.
