This New Pedestrian Crossing Sign Lasted One Day Before Getting Hit

Pedestrian crossing signs aren't often long for this world. They're thrown out onto the streets practically waiting to get hit. So goes the story of a pedestrian crossing sign at Lamartine and Mozart streets. Jamaica Plain resident @pawlbologna tweeted about his personal experience with the intersection, including getting hit in 2017. He shared the challenge of getting the city to put up a new pedestrian crossing sign after a previous sign was hit and unusable.
