Davis Square Signal Pattern Changes

If you’ve traveled through Davis Square, you’ve likely noticed that many pedestrians don’t wait for the walk signal when crossing the street and after some data analysis we understand why. If you only cross when you have the walk signal it could take you more than five minutes to get around the square. Although crossing without the walk signal isn’t the safe choice, it has been the fast choice.
