Pedestrian Scrambles and Traffic in Chicago

15 Jun

What’s a “pedestrian scramble”? Sounds like a bad breakfast special, but in reality you can find the answer in this recent article put out by the SunTimes and discussed on The Chicago Architecture Blog.

Turns out Chicago has problems with pedestrian crossings throughout the city and especially near tourist hot spots. More over there are places, such as off high ways and LSD where drivers forget they are on city streets and NOT a major thru-way.

As stated before on this site, traffic along Sheridan is nothing to scoff at and neither are our pedestrian crossings. The media usually picks up stories like this when referring to our ‘downtown’ and high tourist areas, however, our leaders should not forget about the often equally congested northern regions where us tax payers also battle with speeders and txting teens.

Food 4 Thought.
