Instead of the usual voice telling you it's ok to cross either the "driveway" or Alma, it now says (I think) "Let's Vote!" Well, I'll tell you, the fidelity of the speakers is not very good, and with the traffic, I heard, "Let's Go!". I smell a *very* large lawsuit against the City of Palo Alto the first time a blind person hears that, and walks into oncoming traffic on Alma.
Could someone actually have been that stupid to modify a *safety* feature of a traffic signal at a busy intersection? Or, did someone actually hack into the signals, and change the phrase it says?
Either way, this worries the hell out of me.
