Zebra crossing

Noun

A crosswalk. 

“He is extremely pleased as he sits inside the cab; there’s no other way to describe the feeling settling over his person like a winter cloak. His phone buzzes inside his left trouser pocket. Ah, business as usual, he muses upon examining the email. The reason he prefers riding above London than below it to work. Well, the zebra crossings he gets stuck at nearly every other zone isn’t why he prefers taxis over the tube; he’s figured out the wait time via tube stops and zebra crossings completely outweigh the majority of Londoners’ preference. He’s much closer to work by cab. And, he feels better to check emails freely in the backseat of a cab than being jostled in a crammed train.”
