Whether pedestrian movements do or do not follow similar patterns as vehicular traffic while experiencing congestion is not entirely understood. Using data gathered during bottleneck experiments under laboratory conditions, the phenomenon of anticipation before entering congestion is studied. This paper provides proof that the movement behavior of pedestrians upstream and downstream of bottleneck severely differs severely. As such, this paper concludes that a fundamental diagram of pedestrian
