Hey, it's Sunday.

No - it's Super Bowl Sunday. I don't work too hard on Sundays so here is an On This Date In History for you.

February 5th 1952:

The first “Don’t Walk” sign was installed in New York City.

Seems pedestrians couldn't figure out that those big shiny metal monsters heading towards them at crosswalks could kill them. Don't Walk signs were installed to regulate foot traffic across intersections.

Of course that doesn't mean that all pedestrians obeyed the signs.

 We'll be back later with . . . more stuff.
