This is a very pedestrian-heavy area with prominent sidewalks. An additional sign would be helpful!
Hi Jeff, thank you for your considerate reply. In fact, I wasn't completely serious; I take the same route by car all the time too. But we do have to seriously consider how downtown infrastructure is outmoded and heavily biased toward automobiles. Rerouting traffic so that there are safe pedestrian zones, particularly in areas like Broadstreet, which would be an ideal pedestrian zone, is not impossible. And once something like that is done, everyone benefits, and wonders why it wasn't done in the first place. Take a look at how NYC is changing it's streetscapes in favor of pedestrians, to the benefit of all: http://www.grist.org/article/2010-10-11-how-nycs-streets-are-being-reclaimed-from-the-automobile-video/
Downtown should ideally be set up so that through-traffic by automobile is heavily reduced and discouraged, and public transportation and walking within the busiest areas is encouraged. Just check out any beautiful European city, where very few people drive into the heart of town, but walk or ride a bus instead.
Sorry, this issue does not have any images or videos.
Voting lets your government know.
What is this?
