Pedestrian crosses several lanes of traffic on an ill-defined crosswalk.

Pavement in disrepair in crosswalk.

Crosswalk barely visible.

This intersection is the meeting of two huge city streets, any way a pedestrian tries to cross, they are walking past several lanes of folks in cars.

Sidewalk at crosswalk is uneven.
