Loop

Pedestrians walk diagonally across the intersection of State Street and Jackson Boulevard, where a so-called "pedestrian scramble" or "Barnes Dance" allows them to legally cross diagonally. The concept also allows cars to turn without having to wait for pedestrians to cross when cars have a green light. (Credit: CBS)
