Worker Two even commented to me that I was the fifth cyclist of the day to inquire about the cyclists being counted. I was informed that although the equipment they had been issued today, manufactured by JAMAR Technologies, was of an older style that did not allow bicycles to be specifically counted, such equipment is available. However, it was not in use and the workers were not instructed to count bicycles in any way.
Worker Two commented that military installations are required by law to count traffic once per year. I'm not familiar with this. Does anyone know what the law is?
I waited on the corner of Wisconsin Ave and Jones Bridge Road to take the below photo of the counters for about twenty minutes. In that time I counted nine bicycles including myself. Surely, the total number of cyclists in the neighborhood are not an insignificant number. A friend, who also spoke to them, reports that the traffic counter with whom the friend had spoken stated that tons of bikes had been seen but none counted.
