Ticking Swedish Pedestrian-Crossings

When I was in Stockholm I noticed these ticking pedestrian crossings, which use mechanical clicks to notify when its safe to cross.

I’m sure to any Swedish people, it must seem strange how fascinated I was by something so mundane. But I found the clockwork ticking of these traffic lights quite delightful and something I definitely wanted to record.
