I mostly cross Michigan Ave. Either at Rosa Parks, 14 st or further down near Trumbull or 8th. I try to cross at the crosswalk but I see many people crossing these roads in the middle of the street. They do this because the pedestrian cross sensors takes too long and people are waiting all the time. Also I see an increase of business people in the area that are on conference calls and with the mix a speeds up to 45 mph to 55 mph and people crossing the road it makes for a stressful experience. There are not really any parking places that make it easier to navigate the city on foot but I try to find a parking space in front of the store I am going to or at least on the same side of the road so I do not have to cross the road. More parking lots are need as they are hard to come by.
