If you’re going to do something pedestrian-friendly, it won’t do to have drivers unclear on the concept:
Irene Stroh, 24, 1520 W. Ashland Ave., was walking across Riverside after the Scramble Light changed when she was hit by a 2002 Ford F-150 pickup driven by Brian A. Johnson, 37, Selma.
Remember the scramble light at Calhoun and Wayne? I was in high school then, and I thought it was the coolest thing ever invented. Walking through the intersection and seeing cars having to wait in all four directions, it felt like I was getting away with something I shouldn’t have been able to do.
UPDATE: An alert commenter (who just had to throw in a gratuitous remark about the time when dinosaurs oamed the Earth) remembered a Mitch Harper post about the scramble light (with pics) at Fort Wayne Observed in 2006.
