Signs I need as a pedestrian

Being a pedestrian in Brussels is infuriating. The combination of constantly having to dodge dog poo and dangerously driven tax free company cars makes me feel that instead of mouthing swear words at SUV drivers I need actual signs in multiple languages!

The signs I need as a pedestrian (Rue au Bois, Brussels)

And yes, it is a systemic problem that we have designed our cities around cars, and it is sometimes very difficult to make certain journeys safely without them BUT there is a lot more many of us could be doing to cut down on our driving and to drive more safely when we do drive, and quite possibly a small reminder/regular guilt trip over the amount of air pollution we are causing each time we drive would be no bad thing- I know I need it.
