|Times Square today|
Whenever I visit New York I am astounded by the way that most pedestrians don't pay any attention to the traffic signals and just wander across the road any old time dodging taxis and buses. What is even more amazing is that the policemen who are on nearly every corner around Times Square just ignore them.
Imagine how much money they could make in fines if they booked these lawbreakers. They might even get enough to fix up the rough sidewalks and patchy roads.
