New York: NYC Senior Works to Educate Peers on Pedestrian Safety

Seventy-seven year-old New Yorker Gene Aronowitz visits senior centers in Brooklyn to educate his peers on pedestrian safety. He brings a 20 foot rope, the length of an average crosswalk, to time his fellow seniors to see if they’re walking quick enough for the amount of time they have to cross the street. He says lights are usually timed at 4 feet per second, but it takes seniors a bit longer than that to cross.
