How do buttons for pedestrian work?
A special effort has been made to make sure all these buttons are operational. Please note that these buttons do not immediately respond; there is a wait time of up to 100 seconds, although typical wait times are shorter. Unfortunately, due to the delay, pedestrians may become impatient or conclude the button is not working and cross the street at improper times. Where the buttons are present, it is very important that they be used to activate the pedestrian walk interval. Please use them and follow the directions on the adjacent signs. Use of the button is the only way to ensure that sufficient crossing time will be provided.
