Love the Archway Road video.

Pedestrians will wait a reasonable amount of time for a red light. They'll avoid crossing a head-high fence.

Otherwise? You put a barrier in between them and their destination, and a lot of them are going to try and cross it. And why shouldn't they? A small detour is a long time on foot.

I wouldn't mind pedetrian barriers along Cannon and Main, but to protect the pedestrians as much as the driver. But it would interfere with street-side parking, and I think the city needs more of that, not less. It wouldn't stop jaywalking anyways, since the city treats non-signalized intersections as jaywalking, and you can't exactly put a wall across Pearl street... wait, I think they'd actually do that. Maybe I should shut up.
