Look both ways

Okay my side note to San Fransisco. It didn't confuse me so much that you don't have buttons to prompt the little walky light to change for me to cross... what was confusing was that some streets didn't have the walky light at all. Now I know we're from Canada and all... but this is the closest I got to figuring out your rules for pedestrians.

If there is a walk/don't walk light thingee, don't look for the button, you just have to wait for it to change. Be patient. *ahem* Dad, that's us.

If there isn't a walk/don't walk light thingee, you can walk by default when the traffic parallel to your path has a green light.

If there is a break in traffic, and nobody is turning it's acceptable to cross.
