Which leads me to a related question.. if only using in dry conditions, do the salmon pads still provide more stopping power? I'd assume a shorter life of the pad though.

Sounds like I need to unclip more in preparation when approaching intersections. I unclip my left foot first - has there ever been a poll to see what is more common?
