I shook my head when I saw this sign saying "Pedestrians please use the (street) crossing aid." It is typical for the German administration to instruct people to do something.

I mean, if the traffic is really heavy (and since this is a main road leading the traffic around the old town it most likely *is* a very busy road in rush hour) and pedestrians have a hard time to cross the street they are probably happy to walk a little detour to use this pedestrian refuge island, no? And in times without much traffic they will most likely NOT use it.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
