  1. Yesterday while commuting, I biked over some sort of piezometric tube (one of the methods discussed in the Alta Planning document linked from the Flying Pigeon article) on Sanborn leading up to Sunset Junction. A few of the other side streets off of Sunset appeared to have similar tubes stretched across parts of the roadway. I couldn’t tell if they were set up by the city or a local individual, and whether they were the sort that can count and differentiate bikes and cars, or if they were just the sort that count cars, or that count undifferentiated bikes and cars.

    Does anyone know who might have set up those counters?
