Re: What Really Causes Traffic Congestion

Your interpretation of what i was speaking about extending green time not being possible in some cases is wrong. I was not referring to pedestrians vs autos. I was talking about autos vs autos.

If the traffic demand is great in all directions which is often the case, making one road flow easier by increasing green time makes the other flow slower because their green time is reduced simply moving the congestion from one street to another.

You're still making my point, which is that to you, only automobiles matter. You're not even taking into account the benefit for the pedestrians, or trying to weigh that against the potential worsening of conditions for motorists.

Quit trying to make it seem like all I care about is autos and have no regard for pedestrians.

You don't need me to do that. You're doing a great job all by yourself.

All drivers are at one time pedestrians also.

But depending on how the city is arranged, drivers in many cases don't need to cross streets to get where they're going. Convenient, no?
