The survey consisted of three questions. The surveyors were asking the questions slightly differently, but the basic questions were:
- "Did you travel on 10th Street today?"
- "What did you think of the traffic? Good, bad or neutral?"
- "Do you think the bike lane made it better, or worse, or had no effect?"
When asked, the surveyor we spoke to said he worked for a private company, hired by Jefferson. We chatted for a few minutes and he remarked that he supposed Jefferson was doing the survey because, "there had been a lot of accidents and such on 10th Street." (He made it clear he was positing his own theory on why Jefferson is collecting opinions on the bike lane.)
It's worth noting that there was a utility crew in the middle of the left-hand buffered bike lane at Sansom Street, causing traffic to slow down to a crawl.
We're investigating...stay tuned.
