Ban Beg Buttons!

“Beg buttons” penalize people for walking or riding a bike. Pedestrians have to wait longer for a walk signal, making it take more time to get to your destination. A green light for cars often displays a red hand for pedestrians unless you push a button. Beg buttons can also be hard to access or press, especially for people with disabilities and mobility issues. Let’s stop penalizing pedestrians and bicyclists. Why do we even have these?

Although I have many years of formal education, most of what I've learned has come from experimenting and trying to solve problems on my own. Once an idea for a project is set in my mind, it is all-consuming and one must learn everything possible about the subject on the way to the outcome. For learning is more than reading books and spoken word, it is hours of frustration, trial and error, and one sudden flash of insight when the world magically makes sense. It is during this moment when I am truely alive.
