Few seem to be concerned nowadays about real safety. Just pseudo-safety (or what I prefer to call fake safety). No design will make up for dangerous behavior. Yet many seem fixated on "environmental" solutions (4-3 lane conversions, road diets, pedestrian refuges, civil engineers, etc. etc).
When will we get to the real problem? Pedestrians stepping out in front of oncoming traffic.


If people seem fixated on environmental solutions there are probably a few reasons for that:

A. They work
B. It's something the city, and specifically DDOT, has control over
C. They usually come with other benefits

I question whether pedestrians stepping in front of traffic is the real problem. What do you base that on? It certainly is A problem, but I don't think we can limit ourselves to just one problem with an issue like this.
