A proposal to install audible cross signals to help blind people safely cross the street doesn't seem like something to complain about, but not on the Upper East Side. Residents are furious with the DOT for proposing such an outlandish plan. "This is just horrible," said one guy. "We can't sleep enough on this corner already." Another said, "How much noise pollution do we need? It repeats over and over again, a drone of an announcement." "This is the worst proposal I've ever heard of for a neighborhood that doesn't need it." So much neighborly love, right? [DNAinfo]
