Last week I was at Kingshighway Blvd at Devonshire Ave but I wanted to be on the other side of Kingshighway.
Most signals in the city don’t require activating the pedestrian signal but after I didn’t get the walk symbol I began looking for a button.
Oh there it is. Unfortunately, I can’t reach it because 1) it’s too high and 2) it’s at the one place on the poll I can’t reach because no sidewalk exists. After dinner I crossed Kingshighway at the other crosswalk, pressed the button but still no walk symbol. Complete pedestrian failure.
