Pedestrians have the right of way when using a crosswalk. I walk when the indicator says its fine, but I don't hurry up for anyone else. I'm not more important than they are and vice versa. They can wait.
Most of the time I just look for traffic, and when it's fine I'm crossing. Real crosswalks don't have lights, wth ><
Anyway... trafficlights... I do the exact same, since they're so badly configured here that it's often safest in certain moments of red <.< Thank you privatisation, for ruining even my walks through town. I mean, privatising traffic-lights!? . . . Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy? ;_;
