Tonight...a first test for automatic signals installed at a crosswalk where a mother was killed and her daughter injured. Now, people heading to worship hope the changes will mean a safer walk. 3 New automatic signals are up at an intersection that claimed the life of a 57 year old jewish woman and her teenage daughter They were hit by a car a little more than a month ago while crossing San Jose boulevard on their way to a local synogogue. Since then, people in the community have been pushing for safety changes at that intersection to accommodate the beliefs of orthodox jews in the area who can't operate crosswalk signals. Channel 4's Scott Johnson is out there tonight as the jewish sabbath begins to see if the changes are helping, Scott? 3 3 they're out again, and this time members of the etz chaim synagogue are able to cross san jose boulevard without touching the signal...which goes against their belief system tha tthey can't operate electronics starting friday after sundown which is their sabbath.ARTHUR ROSENTHAL 4:39:33 - We just heard about it this evening. 'what do you think about that?' well, i'm not sure if it follows halalah code, but we're going to see how it works.I asked what that meant... I was told that under their tradition orthodox jews are not allowed to operate an electronic sensor and by walking under these new sensors that may happen... this is an issue because of the death of esther ohayon last month when she was crossing san jose last month. The congregation at etz chaim has been very vocal about traffic problems here and hoping for a crosswalk solution... I asked if this has been frustrating.4:39:52 - I don't really think it is at this point,. We're not really, going to follow rabbi's ruling on this.so I spoke with the rabbi who couldn't speak on camera because of the sabbath but he tells me this is a better solution than nothing and he's strongly considering this as a solution to the crosswalk problem ... but he won't know for sure until meeting with the department of transportation.So for now his congregants continue to cross the street...many in reflective vests.STEVEN SHAPIRO 4:40:52 - to make sure I can be seen. 'has that been a problem?' oh yes, always an issue around here.There have been accidents her before, so and lots of close calls. UNNAMED 4:40:21 - Well it's a terrible tragedy and uh i'm glad they're finding ways to ensure this doesn't happen again.the rabbi says he's scheduled to meet with the dot early next week and will know by then if they're 3 3 Scott, did the rabbi say there would be a better alternative than the sensors to honor their belief system?
