Only in Florida

Due to abundance of elderly in Florida, or maybe it is a hiker? This crosswalk sign was spotted on my bike ride along the Orange county multi-use trail. There is usually very little traffic at this pedestrian crossing, so I usually do not mash the crossing button. (This is not an intersection, but a pedestrian crossing only.)
Like the dromedary in the signal, this signal is a bit different in that it has a whole (unused) segment "burned" on, rather than burned out.
As part of the Liberals dumbing down of America and multi-linguist movement, the "walk" "don't walk" English versions are being replaced by pictures of a hand - stick-man walking icon. The instructions to push the button to cross the street are still in English only. No braille, Spanish, French or pictures. What is with that?
