I post this with a recent experience in Auburn in which many “security officers” have been hired to direct traffic at every intersection: go, don’t go, go, etc. It strikes me as crazy and even worse than goofy lights that take no account existing traffic patterns, whether automotive or pedestrian. It turns out that letting drivers and walkers manage themselves is better all around.
