Agreed. Speed and volume are the real issues, and a 30kph speed limit, two lanes rather than three, and a buffer between the sidewalk and the street would go a long way to calming the street.

I don't know where Mr. Whitehead lives, but I'm pretty sure he would not enjoy a "highway" in his front yard with cars hopping the curb of his sidewalk on a daily basis.

What is shocking to me is that the traffic planners actually came up with the idea to ruin an old neighborhood just so more cars could move faster through it. Very disheartening to know that speed is more important than safety and liveability.
