Thought this was a cool blog post about road-diet ideas in Philadelphia. They use snow to determine sections of road that aren’t being used.

This is great. I wonder if there’s any way to come up with high quality candidates en masse… pay whoever does the satellite photos something sorta reasonable to get city wide photos_ a day or two after a big storm?

I’m betting almost all of the worst intersections bike/ped safety wise also have a ton unnecessary space to encourage speeding and make crossing difficult.

Slow the cars to something more reasonable, possibly even legal like snow does and a different picture emerges.
