Striped Cross Walks Coming to New Hampshire and Quincy St, NW – Do they work?

Some new striped crossings are going in on both sides of New Hampshire Ave and Quincy St, NW. While I appreciate the effort, in my walkabout experiences – these striped crossings don’t work any better than regular crossings. The only thing that I’ve found to work is a traffic light or stop sign. What have your experiences been like? Do you find that cars are more likely to slow down for you if you are crossing the street in a stripped crossing (without a traffic light)? Maybe we should get some Crosswalk flags?
