The city can thank Hart Solomon for this. If he hadn't created the "Ghost Crosswalks" problem, the public wouldn't have a confusion about the nature of crossings and the city could continue to paint crosswalks freely for unprotected crossings.

But now? Now some pedestrians are used to the idea that a crosswalk signals a somehow-protected crossing, and this represents a liability for the city. And there's no good way to explain to everybody "this is a crossing without a specific yield, everybody just needs to be courteous" without giving somebody the wrong impression.

If people were used to seeing crosswalks on uncontrolled intersections, this whole issue could've been avoided.

Thanks, Solomon.
