So what's the consensus on naked streets -- stripping out all of the lanes, lines, stop signs and signals? It gets a mention in Jeff Speck's Walkable City, with reference to success stories in European cities. Couldn't do it everywhere but are there streets in Hamilton where this could work? Could it work on some key streets downtown that we're looking to make more pedestrian friendly?

And distracted drivers who speed through school zones and fail to yield to parents & kids don't need traffic cones. They need to be pulled over by the police and issued stiff fines and demerits. Maybe the Hamilton Police Service should set up where there's been acts of tactical urbanism - potential hotspot for safety violations and a revenue generator.
