I'm sure it's quite easy for you to wait 20 years for some other group to gain their rights.

But try telling that 60 year old gay couple they have to wait another 20 years for their relationship to be recognized. They (and plenty others) are not exactly in a position to afford to wait.

part of it was the fact that historically, polls have under reported opposition to same sex marriage. That gap has been falling, but until last night, has always been present. Even in California.

Add the pedestrian walk signals as a full, exclusive cycle to the traffic signal.

In that cycle, pedestrians cross all four intersections, and even diagonally. Automobiles don't move at all: no right turn on red.

The same applies to pedestrians: no pedestrians move when cars are moving anywhere in the intersection.

This eliminates all car/pedestrian interactions (no pedestrians in a blind spot of a turning car, e.g.).

You have your logic backwards.
