These checklists are a starting point for analyzing how dense conflicts are on a given street and how active that street is, in order to determine a safe speed limit for a street.
To support quantitative analysis, cities can determine specific thresholds (e.g., What does “high pedestrian volume” mean in your city?) based on local conditions. This guidance avoids determining thresholds so as not to be overly prescriptive.
