It came to our attention that on Thursday, October 24th and Sunday, October 27th, the City did an official count of all modes of traffic utilizing Broadway. This included cars, bikes, and other vehicular traffic We performed a check and balance traffic count the following week on the same days, at the same times (Thurs 7a-9a and 4p-6p, Sun 12p-2p), and at the same intersections (Falcon and Alamitos).
On Falcon and Broadway, we counted an average of 4 bikes, scooters or skateboards per 100 cars, trucks, or motorcycles.
On Alamitos and Broadway, we counted an average of 5 bikes, scooters or skateboards per 100 cars, trucks, or motorcycles.
For good measure, we also performed a traffic count at the intersection at Temple and Broadway, where we counted just over 2 bikes, scooters or skateboards per 100 cars, trucks or motorcycles.
Residents and businesses on Broadway need PARKING far more than they need bike lanes. The road diet disaster is such a clear example of the leadership of our City failing to accurately represent the community.
