I was just taking an "e-walk" through the streets of Rome on Google maps. I noticed plenty of pedestrian zebra crossings on Via del Tritone in particular, but almost no traffic signals.
So...is crossing the streets in Rome one of those "adventures" where you have to just boldly go forth and pray the traffic actually stops for you? Are drivers relatively courteous, or is it a case where pedestrians have to have nerves of steel if you want to get anywhere?
We're travelling with our 2 boys (9 and 13), and I will have the death grip on younger DS's hand as he has special needs, but our 13 year old can often lolligag behind which concerns me.
Just curious what people's experiences are. Thanks.
