Pedestrian Crossing, but sometimes erroneously thought to be a Chinese name. First mentioned in the movie "Slackers".
ANGELA: When I was a little girl, I used to think that the Chinese built the roads in America -- someone must have told me the Chinese built the railroads and I guess I got confused. When the Chinese workers finished paving the road, they'd write "PED XING" on it in big white letters, in honor of who I assumed was their emperor or something: "Ped Ching."
