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

"The vast majority of high volume one way streets appear to have synchronization to me..."

True. but we are talking about all streets not only high volume one-way streets. And of course the number of vehicles using those streets are very significant.

But if you look at an average trip, chances are no street with traffic signal synchronization would even be used. Even if you want to look at miles traveled, I would estimate that no more than 20 percent involve streets with signal synchronization. Even if it is more than 20 percent, it certainly is way less than 50 percent.

And you are the first one to dismiss anything less than 50 percent as insignificant just as you stated that most riders have an unlimited MetroCard. I believe the figure is 54 percent. So you just dismiss that other 46 percent as insignificant.

So if you can do that. I certainly can dismiss the number of miles traveled on streets with signal synchronization.

So as for the larger point, I still maintain that lowering the speed limit lowers the average speed as long as some abide by the lower speed limit.
