Pedestrian turn signals

Three times a week I weave through throngs of students on my bicycle to get to Rec Hall to play basketball. Today I had to slow down considerably to see which way one of these pedestrian students was going to turn before I could decide exactly what course I was going to take. A thought occurred to me that it would be nice if pedestrians were equipped with turn signals so that I could tell what their intentions were and adjust my course accordingly.

But three seconds after this insight I realized that the idea was useless, as pedestrians--just like drivers of motor vehicles--would not use their turn signals anyway.
