5th has the Roskruge buses and student pick up drop off traffic twice a day during the school year. I wouldn't exactly call it car free for about 3 hrs a day M-F. Personally I don't go anywhere near 5th when schools in session. I like Mr McKisson's quote in the Wildcat moderate though it may be. I'm confused as to why mode shifting has to include knocking over bicyclists with tripping tracks of death. I'm pretty sure that a road that tossed automobile drivers onto the ground would not have been built and certainly not on the most prime and utilised route in the city.
