It would be an excellent idea for the city to also install signs at the zebra crossings saying 'motorists must stop for pedestrians in crosswalk' as they have done at McMaster.

Although this should be obvious, motorists in Ontario (and especially Hamilton) seem to have forgotten long ago that they are required to yield to pedestrians crossing at any intersection, with or without a marked crosswalk. Having signs emphasizing this duty, would be a good step in reintegrating 'stopping at crosswalks' into normal driving behaviour.

Here's some signs from New Jersey: http://www.nj.gov/lps/hts/pedestrian.htm...

remember it is already provincial law that motorists must stop, the signs would just be a reminder!
