Crazy Crosswalk Confusion

Geez. You can’t even cross the street without getting tagged by BrockVlog. Note the downtown corner of King and Broad Streets. The separate “Walk” and “Don’t Walk” lights have been recently morphed into one single light that displays either one instruction or the other. It sounds like the perfect and logical method.
