A video by Portugal's "Interactive Ninja" demonstrates a unique approach to crosswalk design.  In this video. some local activists use some spray paint and stencils to add the names of those pedestrians killed in crashes with cars.  The purpose is to both memorialize those who have fallen and to educate both pedestrians and drivers to be more aware of their surroundings.
