You're bang on with all accounts, except the 'needless stop signs'....normally, you'd be right - if we were engineering streets to be inherently safe and slow. But as the rest of your comment illustrates, we don't...and therefore fed-up residents begin to demand stops signs.
I'll admit - I've been one of them. Was absolutely thrilled to see stop signs come to Locke and Strathcona at all cross streets between King and York. It was a freeway without them.
I've never walked or driven around Amsterdam, but I'm guessing they don't have nearly as many stop signs as us....because the streets are engineered for safe movement by everyone.
