This week, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced his intention for Los Angeles to embrace a new style of crosswalk: diagonal crosswalks, also known as "pedestrian scramble" crosswalks. All car traffic stops while pedestrians move freely about the crosswalk. You might've already seen them in Old Town Pasadena, across Colorado Boulevard on Raymond and DeLacey.
