Bumping, because counters are still needed. This is an easy way to give back and help build future infrastructure. While the City has added automated counters (http://www.bikearlington.com/pages/biking-in-arlington/counting-bikes-to-plan-for-bikes/counter-dashboard/), there is still a big gap in capturing the users of our streets and trails. Data from the counts at the locations below will help inform future projects.

One of the constant perceptions in the City is there aren't pedestrians and bikers using the streets and trails therfore why should any money be put into infrastructure for these users. Having the data to show usage helps to counter that view.

NOTE: You don't have to live in Alexandria to be a counter.
