Road Rage for Pedestrians
Slow walkers getting in the way of fast walkers, people looking at their cell phones and abrupt stops are seen as sources of road rage. The more crowded a street, the more likely sidewalk rage is to occur, some say.
"According to a study conducted by the NYC Department of City Planning, the city was listed as having the highest population density in the country with 26,403 people per square mile in 2000.
According to the study, the average speed of walkers in Lower Manhattan is 4.27 feet per second – tourists clocked in at 3.79 ft/s, smokers at 4.17 ft/s, cell phone users at 4.20 ft/s, men at 4.42 ft/s, and woman at 4.1 ft/s."
