I live on Park just south of Herkimer. Herkimer is a high-traffic-volume high-speed racetrack of cut-through "rat-running" car drivers. The Durand Neighbourhood Association has been trying to end the cut-through rat-running since the 1970's. The sort of security bollards that are routine in virtually every Dutch city to prevent cut-through car drivers.

City staff have been consistently frustrating the will of the people, most recently by preventing such a proposal from even appearing on the Participatory Budget ballot. Our wonderful democracy: Where the city staff does not allow people to vote on items to improve their own neighbourhood.
