Patient falls and breaks hip at the hands of inadequate traffic signals
“I witnessed ageism from a green-man crossing signal. It did not happen to me, but it happened to a woman at a road crossing, within the last month. This women was attempting to cross at a crossing but the green man did not give her enough time, subsequently she rushed and fell, breaking her hip.
[This is ageism because] there was a lack of accommodation to the fact that some citizens cannot move as fast as others.
This made me feel angry, but made the woman feel humiliated.”
