Dumbest idea ever. I almost hit someone last week because they pushed the crosswalk and started crossing soon as the yellow light started flashing, not even waiting to see if traffic would stop or if they saw them. I was only going 35mph and was in the intersection before I stopped. If it's a real crosswalk add a stoplight not just some flashing lights on the side of the road... and it's not the drivers, but the false impression it gives to the people crossing that it's safe to go. Also, I don't think any color lights on the side of the road will do it. How many drivers Ed classes say a blinking light out of the corner of your eye means stop. It's just not where drivers are looking and you can't see the light until you're up close vs a red stoplight which you see a 1000ft out.

I hate that it flashes as soon as the person presses the button. They'll cross as soon as it does without even checking

If they intend on keeping those in the crosswalks, it should have a time delay for the flashing
