Paris of vested people with clipboards at intersections Around Town, posted by Citizen, a resident of the Valencia neighborhood, on Apr 14, 2010 at 4:28 pm
I have seen pairs of people with clipboards sitting at significant intersections around town. Anybody know who they are and what their task is? Are they traffic monitors? I sure hope that they are there to count & record all the people running red lights. Yesterday I was at Stoneridge & Hopyard and I counted 5 cars continuing to turn left after the signal turned red. The only place I have seen such disobedience and uncare for traffic signals is driving in China. The traffic in this town is behaving more & more like a 3rd world country.

They are doing traffic counts. It helps the City prepare its City-wide traffic baseline report as far as the volume of cars traveling through intersetions. They can then analyze signal timing needed, road or turning lane lengthening, etc.
