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

You are correct except for the point that most major thoroughfares have basic synchronization. Many do not. That includes the lower half of Nostrand Avenue and the entire Utica Avenue.

So you realize that for many or most streets,there is no synchronization which disproves R 30A's claim. He implied that since all Midtown Manhattan signals are synchronized, lowering the speed limit would not affect average speed, ignoring the fact that those signals are only synchronized for the avenues and not the crosstown streets. So even if trips would not be significantly slowed on the avenues because of synchronization. Speeds still would be slowed on the side streets when speeds are not limited by traffic.
