All in fun. This happened to me Monday taking the back way home from work:
Me? I wondered. I shook my head 'No'. Crossing guard got very excited lifted a leg and waved more madly at me so I pulled to the left of the line of cars and went forward all the while she was waving me thru. As I crossed and passed she cheerfully said to me: "It's a pedestrian crossing!" and some other words about not waiting.
So yeah, I got waved to the front of a line, thru a stop sign to get on the MUP.
