So let me take a page out of your book. THE VAST MAJORITY OF STREETS DO NOT HAVE THEIR SIGNALS SYNCHRONIZED.
I would estimate the percentage of street miles that are not synchronized are over 80 percent.
So my point still stands that virtually no one makes their entire trip on a synchronized street without making any turns so that part of their trip is on unsyncronized streets.
SO YOUR CLAIM IS RIDICULOUS.
Source? The vast majority of high volume one way streets appear to have synchronization to me. Large number of trips do stay almost entirely on these streets. So yes, it is not only not ridiculous, it is blatantly true that a significant number of people could be unaffected by such a change.
Making or missing a signal is the second most important factor affecting average speed. Only traffic would be more important. And the speed limit would be third.
These things aren't rankable
No one said it was the only thing or the mist mportant thing affecting speed. So quit putting words in my mouth and trying to twist what I am saying to substantiate the ridiculous points you are trying to make.
I never said you said that. Furthermore, it is incredibly hypocritical of you to make such a statement.
