Re: What Really Causes Traffic Congestion

Only a few intersections? In the heart of the Strip, there are five of them, at every major intersection. The only streets that don't have them are ones that act as driveways to the hotels. There are none at the north end of the Strip because there are not enough pedestrians to warrant them. They will have them too when new hotels are built or renovated there.

And how do you know what was the thinking forty years ago? Were you even alive then? For your information, Jane Jacobs was very popular back then and she advocated for Downtowns friendly to pedestrians and against cities built or the automobile, the same thinking we have today.
