A monkey run once was a poor person’s promenade where boys and girls dressed up for show, but has become a place where pedestrians scamper when the light turns red against them. This one is at the intersection of Lewis Lake and Dr TK Lawless Park in Vandalia, Michigan. The talk about lawless vandals has us feeling worried.

We checked this one out carefully. We can assure you there are no monkeys and no traffic lights. The most dangerous wild things are rutting deer and mountain bikers. You might confront a teenager snowboarding across your path in winter, in which you had better join the monkey run.
