A peeve of ours is how often idiot drivers completely ignore pedestrian crossings in East Hampton. (To be fair, another is how idiot pedestrians decide they're just too important to cross in the crosswalk and suddenly lunge in front of our car.) The illuminated crosswalks now on Main Street at Huntting Lane and the Circle definitely help alert motorists that people are trying to cross. Now East Hampton Village plans to put another in at Newtown Lane; the 2013-4 budget includes $80,000 for its installation. Sounds like a good idea.
