NYC: Dont Walk

WALK/DONT WALK signs first appeared in the late 1950s, along with the large, guy-wired stoplights they were most often attached to, on busier NYC streetcorners. And so they remained, for over four decades, until the DOT converted the signs to the more energy efficient pictograms starting in 1999. The DOT did see fit to insert the grammatically correct apostrophe.
