What does a pedestrian crossing light mean?

If you're driving a vehicle, it means you stop, wait for any and all pedestrians to cross, and don't go until all pedestrians have cleared the street.

Los Angeles drivers don't seem to understand this basic concept. All the more reason I believe a driver's license should be at least as hard to get as a pilot's license.

Unfortunately, walking or skating in LA or Santa Monica is often as dangerous as driving.
