Good Grief - in times of severe rain, how does that umbrella, four feet above her head actually protect her from the elements? stupid

It looks more like a desk ornament when complete with traffic girl.

From what I read the umbrellas are mainly for sun protection. They could still don a rain poncho if needed.

Here's another picture of the new podiums - click on the picture to see it much larger.

Another thing is that in a city of such straight lines and rectangular buildings, the introduction of a curved element may be a bit of a relief.

I'd like to see the changing of the TG guard with those new platforms.

They're kind of silly looking. All that effort into designing building and maintaining them - why not just turn on the traffic lights instead?

Because umbrellas and traffic girls don't require electricity to operate. Laughing

I would love to see what happens to that thing in a good strong wind, it'd probably tip over and then get blown down the street.

Somehow, I don't believe the assertion that these platforms have lights or heating devices. That would mean it would have to be hooked up to utilities which I doubt is the case.

The more I look at this thing, the sillier it appears.
