Walk ! Don't Walk !

Wendy . Blog Shakespeare slept here! Publicado 28 Marzo 2012


That's what I saw when I crossed the street for years. And then the little men appeared at the crosswalks, the little green men and the little red men that showed us what to do. We didn't need to read Walk! Don't Walk! any more. We had pictures, that were color-coded.

I never thought about those little men in other places or other countries until I saw the construction site near Ground Zero, at the World Trade Center. As people walked up and down the sidewalk and waited to cross at crowded intersections, they saw the little men, and were themselves little men, women and children, passing by.

Do you recognize any of these? You probably see one of them every day !



crossed: crucé la calle
crosswalks: paso de zebra, cruce de peatones
construction site: zona de obras
crowded: atestado de gente

I have to said that this (usually) mens are different depending on the country... For example, in Germany traffic lights shows a man wearing a hat, in USA appears a hand or letters like "walk or stop" instead of the human figure. Curiously, in a German city called Zwickau, which looks more japanese than german, is the figure of a girl. Interesting!!
