[CARTOON] Barney the Dinosaur
In Toronto they're going to do a trial run with some intersections where there is high pedestrian traffic. These 'scramble zones' will stop trafic in all 4 directions then allow pedestrians to cross from corner to corner; even diagonally if they choose. Another name for 'scramble zones' is 'turkey walks'. Not exactly a leading edge new idea; we had these in my hometown when I was 5 (about 34 years ago).
