Royalty has taken up residence in the barrio

Royalty has taken up residence in the barrio

Queens and kings warns drivers at many street corners in Mexico City to look out for pedestrians. Now now they've crossed the border to protect walkers at South Convent and West 17th Street in downtown Tucson.

The intersection has stop signs on the east and west sides, but I've seen many drivers zoom right through. I hope that my new friends will get motorists to pay attention. Check out the next photo for another of Mexico City's clever crossing guards.

I am tempted to invite this dog and its human to Tucson. What do you think? A cyclist visiting Tucson from Portland told me yesterday that a few neighborhoods there are also have guerrilla crossing guards, but he likes Tucson's royalty so much that he took photos to share with his Portland friends.
