Crossing the street

Too dumb? Crossing the street now requires instructions!

Man, have you seen some of the crosswalks in Hoboken? They now have multiple step “instruction manuals” for crossing the street! As if clear symbols and decades of experience is not enough? They need to give you a “refresher” prior to engaging in that simple task?

I just wonder what led to this in today’s day and age.

  1. Legal bullshit. Justifying gobs of lawyers working for cities now? Plus the litigious nature of every idiot that gets hit by a car? Are they just “covering their bases?”
  2. Or are people just plain stupid these days, that they actually NEED an explanation for everything?

While I’m inclined to say “both,” my money is on the lawyers.
