Pedestrian Group Wants Walkers to Use Hand Signals

I cross the street at Sprague and Bernard every day. Even though I cross when the light tells me to, I still get yelled at pretty much every time. So maybe I should take the Danish Pedestrian Society's suggestion and use pedestrian hand signals. 

It's no joke- that's what the society is recommending to keep to keep pedestrians safe. That they use hand signals like bicyclists do to convey what they plan to do.

Their reasoning is that pedestrians shouldn't be exempt because they play a part in keeping traffic running smoothly.
