I hope there will be a big public information campaign to educate motorists about their responsibility to yield to pedestrians crossing legally at crosswalks.

That being said, McMaster installed its own "courtesy crossings" several years ago that inform motorists that they must yield to crossing pedestrians and they seem to be safe for pedestrians (occasionally motorists interpret them as a stop sign and stop even when pedestrians aren't present ... but that seems to be the only problem).

Note that McMaster did not install signs informing pedestrians (and motorists) that they are not required to stop at the courtesy crossings, which is obviously counter-productive and dangerous!
