“Running Man” Crosswalk Countdown Timer in Guadalajara
I've started to see a slew of countdown timers popping up all over Queens & Manhattan of late, but this one I saw while in Guadalajara last week surely ups the fun quotient of crossing the street, not to mention evoking a chuckle or two.
It's not as if I haven't seen countdown signals with moving glyphs before, but this certainly is the most robust and speediest pedestrian I've ever come across. (For brevity, we're only showcasing the last 20 seconds as the first 25 seconds prior has the pedestrian moving at a snail's pace.)
After some research, I've discovered that these kinds of crossing signals are somewhat common in Asia and some places Central America. Anyone seen anything with mucho gusto in the U.S.?
