    It kind of makes sense that most store owners would drive a car. But it’s sad that they don’t understand how much foot and bike traffic they get.

      When cities are no longer built for foot/bike traffic and businesses instead choose locations based on the amount of stop signs or red lights which can view the storefront, this is an inevitable result.

        Does this really work? I don’t care about the stores while at the red light, I just watch the light to go green.

          IDK how much it works. Although I’m sure there has been extensive research done on the topic by large retailers who include criteria like this in their checklist for a new store so I would assume it works. These storefronts are most of the time also large anchor stores on the corners of shopping centers. So perhaps it is just a coincidence that there are a lot of stopped vehicles in line of sight of a sign.
