a) great photos. Neat what they did there. I typically cut into the center of the street and hit it at a 90 degree angle. this does the same without me needing to swerve into the middle of the road.
b) I have a pixel 3 too. I love that it captures multiple images and, if it detects movement, strings them together like a gif. i always feel like they’re Harry Potter photos.
I usually do the same thing to cross. A couple weeks ago I had to turn around and give a truck a dirty look because they tried to pass me at that point. Needless to say they were not happy about it. Maybe these markings will help give everyone a heads up about what needs to happen here.
