Crosswalk sign flattened by car in South Beach


One of the reasons I like living in South Beach is that I virtually never have to use my car.  In fact, I only use my car when I’ve got a photo shoot, am meeting a client or have some other commitment on the “mainland.”  Otherwise, I ride my bike or walk everywhere on the island of Miami Beach.  I’ve gotten somewhat accustomed to how dangerous it is to be a pedestrian here so I tend to be a very good “defensive pedestrian.”

On my daily bike route, I came across this cross walk sign that had been flattened by a vehicle at the busy intersection of 5th Street and Alton Road which feeds the MacArthur Causeway.  For those who don’t know, this is a very busy pedestrian and bicycle intersection.

I’ve named this photograph “Irony in Motion” for obvious reasons but I’m open to suggestions.  What would you name this photograph?

What is your experience being a pedestrian or bicyclist where you live?  Feel free to leave a comment.
