I actually think the stop sign mania has had a bad effect on some drivers. Try crossing King Street at Haddon or similar high-speed roads with crosswalks - many drivers do not seem to think they should stop or slow down for pedestrians at crosswalks... they simply shift lanes to dodge around. That's because most pedestrian crossings where a driver will frequently see pedestrians are already covered by a stop sign or a traffic light. Stopping for a naked crosswalk seems unheard-of.

If naked crosswalks were more common, perhaps it could be ground into driver's heads that if you see a pedestrian attempting to cross at an uncontrolled crosswalk, you should stop and let them cross.
