Fairfax County (VA): Thou shalt install proper crosswalks

… and traffic lights for pedestrians.

Honestly, I now know what Americans mean by “going the extra mile”. I have seen at the very least three cross junctions with only two crosswalks. Takes no degree in mathematics or deep knowledge of graph theory to figure out that it is the impossible to get from A to B that way, unless you get lucky.

And while you’re at it, make sure to come up with traffic lights for the pedestrians on the green strip in the middle of your roads.

It would allow pedestrians to cross the five lanes to the green strip while some of the cars are already moving.

These boots may be made for walking, but the US is not.
