Brendan:

Although reverting Queen to 2-way traffic is certainly a good idea, there would still be the "Herkimer Racetrack." Having less cars on Herkimer would enable those who remain to go even faster.

The solution is to completely eliminate rat-running cut-through traffic on residential streets. This can be done through permeable neighbourhood connectors that allow cycle and pedestrian traffic to go through, but prevent car driving. For two examples in Toronto, see:
