I don't like it at night just because a lot of people act stupid then. When I used to go up there 2 years ago in my stupid Toyota, the racing and betting and unyieldingly constant line-crossing ended all the enjoyment for me. If you go on either weekdays, or in the spring or fall, barely anyone up there in the day.
Yea, pedestrian traffic sucks a bit, but I think it's safer than all the times I saw a Honda scrape by inches from my driver side door in my lane. Easier to dodge cyclists and SUV's than those sudden suprises.
Of course, this is my own PERSONAL feelings on this, anyone and everyone is free to go whenever they want of course. I've just found that overall I've suffered less in the day,
