Wating for the green man is part of the green cross code, isn't it? Like, if someone just ran out on red they wouldn't be adhering to the green cross code, would they??? Or maybe you're right. Maybe you are right. But that would mean, like, they don't have the green cross code in America and stuff. But they totally have the green cross code in America, coz I can imagine the words "green cross code" in an American accent. Green crarse code.....

The Green Cross Code

The Green Cross Code has nothing to do with waiting for the green man. It's a government-approved crossing technique for when there's no pedestrian crossing nearby.

THINK! Find the safest place to cross, then stop.
STOP! Stand on the pavement near the kerb.
USE YOUR EYES AND EARS! Look all around for traffic, and listen.
WAIT UNTIL IT'S SAFE TO CROSS! If traffic is coming, let it pass.
LOOK AND LISTEN! When it's safe, walk straight across the road.
ARRIVE ALIVE! Keep looking and listening

foxes & the green cross code

Another friend told me on Tuesday after this got published that she'd seen a fox in Neukölln waiting for the green man. They must've all been learning their green cross code, huh? Probably in a million years time the foxes will have taken over and everything, like planet of the apes. It'll be Bezirk der Fuchsen

Not so Wildlife

Great story Jacinta. I saw a fox on Grossberenstrasse once and he was waiting for the light as well.
