Berlin Ampelmännchen The story of the lights: these characters, the walking man and the standing man are called the Ampelmännchen and were the East German signal system.

After reunification Berlin tried to replace them with a more modern system but everyone went nuts to keep the Ampelmännchen and now they have spread to the government zones in the former West as well.

And no one crosses on red. No one except tourist who get yelled at, 'child killer!'. The idea is that in public you shouldn't teach the children to disobey the law. Or so I heard.
