Curious City: Mimes for Better Traffic
A WBEZ Curious City investigation.

We read that a couple South American cities (Bogotá/Colombia, Caracas/Venezuela) hired a group of mimes to publicly ridicule drivers who violate traffic laws. As it turns out, the plan actually worked. More drivers now stop at crosswalks when pedestrians are present.

The Curious City team brainstormed how we could apply that idea to one of our recently submitted questions: Why do cars fail to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks?

Here is our take on that.
