PEDESTRIAN MOVEMENT

the usually typical and predictable flow of pedestrian traffic in a public place, like a shopping mall, plaza, or road intersection. In spite of obviously random trends in foot traffic, pedestrians generally adhere to the most direct path to a destination, that might or might not adhere to the routes planned and built for pedestrian movement.

PEDESTRIAN MOVEMENT: "Pedestrian movement during Boston's rush hour commute can be almost unbearable some days."
