Sneckdown: Snowfall Reveals True Street Usage

 image

After a significant snow storm, like the one in New York this week, a clear indication emerges of how much of the road is actually needed for automobile traffic. One easily notices how traffic truly flows by way of the paths carved out by cars. Something called sneckdowns also appear.

Neckdowns are curb extensions found at the corner of intersections intended to slow motor vehicles, giving pedestrians a shorter distance to cross. And Sneckdowns are neckdowns caused by snow, like the one in the picture above, like those all over Manhattan today. 

In this way, snow leaves a blueprint for smarter road use. (Or a whiteprint, I guess.) It’s a real-time rendering of how streets should be shared. It’s hard to argue that cars need more space when the snow shows just how much they are actually using. And this knowledge paves the way for more bike lanes and wider pedestrian areas, which in turn make the streets safer

Snow in the city can be a wonderfully peaceful event. Turns out it can even calm traffic, too.

It was both sunny and foggy yesterday on the bridge. Clear view to the water with no sight of the skyline.
