Re: Pedestrians aren't the only ones who matter.

Don't be ridiculous. How do walk and don't walk signs and the better marking of crosswalks keep pedestrians out of the motorist's way? They make it easier to show pedestrians where they should cross and make it easier for cars to avoid them making streets safer.

Your comment assumes a state in which the entire street space (curb line to curb line) is allocated to automobiles. I don't make that assumption. The streets belong to all users, and effectively cordoning off a very small portion of them and telling pedestrians that these are the pieces they get to use helps motorists, not pedestrians.

Note, too, that motorists get to use the portions "allocated" to pedestrians, making conflicts inevitable.
