Bike/Pedestrian Tally

I spent the morning counting bikes, pedestrians, etc., at Post and Buckeye. The vast majority were southbound.

Count.

Count.

Don't count.

One observation I have is that a number of people didn't get counted because they were one, two or three blocks over. With a school in the area many pedestrians took the most direct route. Plus experienced (I assume) cyclists wanting to turn left from southbound Post onto Buckeye made the turn a couple blocks beforehand and then popped out onto Buckeye a couple blocks down the road.

I take Post south to Park Place, east over to Howard and then cross Buckeye into bike lane heaven.(yeah right)

That's a smart way to get to Howard. There's way too many cars waiting in that left turn lane on Post.
