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.
