Crosswalk as memorial

Here's a little bit of street art where they painted a crosswalk with the names of pedestrians killed by cars and a message that 1/4 of all people killed in car crashes were not in a car.



Very provocative, but it seems wasted on other pedestrians. The folks who need to be enlightened are not going to be able to read the names as they drive through the crosswalk. And, it is a bit disturbing that pedestrian attention seemed to be distracted from the task at hand.

No idea where this is. Interesting that this is not a guerrilla activity, but appears to be sanctioned. (Note the police car blocking the intersection.)
