Just for fun (and to enhance your learning!) we have sprinkled a few little thought-provokers in here -- enjoy!
Or to put it in engineering terms, which movement (straight, left, or right) is a potential conflict with other legally moving vehicles? . . . Answer
Question: With this simple traffic pattern, what happens to the drivers who want to turn left? How are conflicts with left-turning vehicles handled? That is, how did they avoid any collisions with other vehicles? . . . Answer
Are your solutions similar to the traffic pattern designs described below?
The WALK signal is the most reliable cue to use to start crossing.
If you do not have access to the pedestrian signal,
the most reliable strategy for crossing with the WALK signal is to
2) cross with the surge of the near-lane-parallel traffic.
More about this key principle is in the section
"Strategies for Visually Impaired Pedestrians at Modern Signals."
Make sure you understand what "near-lane-parallel traffic" is,
