There's nothing "uniquely American" about the concept of pedestrians not simply walking across the street wherever they feel like it; try that shit in Eastern Europe, get fined all the way to oblivion if there's a cop around - as you should be*. There's a good reason the international "pedestrian crossing" traffic sign exists. Sane places use them.

* of course we still do it when the road is effectively empty far to the left and right - but everyone knows it's unmistakably our ass on the line if we failed to spot a cop** and our fault if anything goes wrong.
