Dutiful Pedestrians

Czech pedestrians are very complaisant when faced with traffic lights. They will stand patiently at the curb, waiting for the light to change, even when there’s no traffic in sight, even at midnight, even at 9 AM when they’re scurrying to work. (Well, actually, I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a Czech scurry.)

Czech drivers, on the other hand, and most particularly cab drivers, appear to consider traffic lights to be strictly advisory. Which, come to think of it, may be why the pedestrians are so cautious.
