Ponder A ritual crossing

Do those little "walk" buttons at Victoria intersections really change the timing of the traffic lights? Not everyone is sure they do.

If you are riding a small motorcycle, you may need to push the button at some intersections though. These are generally smaller crossroads that turn green only when there is traffic sensed. A small motorcycle may not be picked up by the sensors so you need to push the button.
