Stop it with the over/underpasses!

Over or underpasses should only be used in cases where it is extremely dangerous for pedestrians to cross on the street level. Re-routing pedestrians over and under with the illusion it will improve traffic makes little sense for either party. In Ortigas and Makati central business districts 2 lane and 4 lane passages use over or underpasses with the false understanding that it will help traffic move more smoothly. All it does is inconvenience people who walk, especially when the escalators are broken- which I've encountered at least once during every trip. Here's 2/5 which were down on my walk down Ayala Ave going to Greebelt :
