    I feel like a car crashes into a building about once a month in San Jose… coincidence?

    I remember seeing the insane damage (they’d removed the car) a car had done to a Blockbuster years ago in SJ. There was tons of broken glass and deep burns in the carpet from the tires.

    The “bikes are 75% of traffic on Market Street” is pretty misleading. That’s a count of vehicles, not people. We should be counting people moved not vehicles moved.

  • What percentage of private vehicles on Market have more than one person?

    And no – you can’t count a taxi with 2 people as moving 2 people. In fact, a taxi with only the driver should be counted as zero people.

  • Kyle Huey

    Very little. My point is that if you look at it in terms of people moved, transit and bicycles will blow everything else away. And that’s what we should be dedicating our street space too (in that order, and both at the expense of private autos).

    And motorists violating the mandatory right turn(s) and illegally driving down Market should count as -1 person.

    More precisely, in terms of people moved on Market St, *transit* will blow everything else away.
