Great article Sean.

Your points about more pedestrians equaling greater safety is spot on. I always marvel at how cautious the drivers are around Bloor and Bathurst in Toronto.

My wife commented to me once that the pedestrians along there were 'nuts' - jaywalking everywhere. But it occurred to me that they were especially safe because drivers were forced to slow down and pay attention. On that note I think Jaywalking should be legalized. It won't be chaos. There is something not right about a line up of people at the cross walk, staring up a perfectly clear street waiting for the light to change...

I hope all these ideas get circulated widely.
