It is true, crosswalk buttons are fake!

You were right all along, pushing the crosswalk button doesn’t do diddly squat, at least not in New York City. More than 2,500 of the 3,250 walk buttons that still exist in New York function only as mechanical placebos. Any benefit from them is ONLY IMAGINED. This should make you wonder – do the buttons really work in your city?
