You are right: the road design (multiple straight wide lanes, no distractions or obstacles) encourages people to drive at unsafe speeds for pedestrians no matter what the posted limit is. The road needs to be designed for the speed we want, and traffic engineers have a big toolkit now to achieve this (narrow lanes, reduced number of lanes, add parking, bumpouts, chicanes etc.).

The road design itself should send the signal to drivers: slow down, there are lots of things to watch out for here.
