The really dangerous one in Burlington is across Lakeshore, just west of Brant at Locust St. There is a narrow but protected median so pedestrians can cross one side at a time, but unless traffic is really heavy and slow, Lakeshore can be a dragstrip - cars trying to beat the lights at Brant, or accelerating after it when heading west. Combine that with vehicles turning onto and off of Locust, or to/from the gas station, or preparing to make a left onto Brant, and there is quite a lot for pedestrians to look out for.

The same signs are there too.

There is a pedestrian-activated traffic light another block west at Burlington Ave., but far more people use the Locust St. crosswalk.
