One final comment to this monologue: If we all agree that there really is an unmarked crosswalk, that begs the question, who can do what?

1. Can the City of Rockville be persuaded to do regular enforcement of crosswalk violations. MoCo police seem to only do stings at marked crosswalks, but some stings at unmarked crosswalks might do more to promote public education about the law.

2. This is a state highway, so I gather that SHA decided not to paint the extra crosswalk. Maybe regular stings would persuade them otherwise.

3. Realistically, the City of Rockville has the greater political capacity to enforce at this intersection because its citizens comprise a greater fraction of pedestrians than drivers. So why don't they?
