Pedestrian Countdown Clock Not a Reason to Hit the Gas

Interesting story on NPR about those pedestrian crosswalk countdown clocks. They apparently cause more crashes at safe intersections, because some drivers see three seconds remaining as a warning to slow down, while others see them as a reason to speed up and beat the clock. That leads to rear-end collisions. If there's good news, it's that the clocks reduce the number of pedestrian accidents.
