I think it means the city is finally admitting the buttons don't do anything
I can’t believe anyone is dumb enough to think those work. I still see people pressing them over and over again. If it didn’t do anything the first time, what makes you think it’ll do anything the next 50 times? I’ve never, ever used them. Then again, we New Yorkers are incorrigible jaywalkers anyway. As soon as traffic clears, I’m walking, light or no light.
