Re: What Really Causes Traffic Congestion

At 6th Avenue and 42 Street, during a single cycle, you could have over 100 pedestrians crossing and only three vehicles able to make the right turn on that cycle

3 cars x 1.3 people/car = 4 people.

So, it's 100 pedestrians vs. 4 people in cars. Who should be favored for a shared use facility?

N.B. Automobiles laid claim to NYC streets during the 1920's. The park on Park Ave was truncated to add more traffic lanes; Central Park's drives were turned into automobile bypasses; pedestrian paths on the Queensboro Bridge were replaced by automobile lanes; traffic lights were installed to prevent traffic jams; etc.
