I completely agree with you, and we should be doing this on every "short cut" street. Cumberland immediately comes to mind.

Another tactic is to have stretches of streets where the one-way direction changes so that you can not drive the full length of it through a neighbouhood. Local traffic learns the rules and they find efficient routes to get to the main streets without having to battle through traffic in their own neighbourhood. - and the neighbourhoods are immeasurably more pleasant to live in.

We need to get rid of the useless strings of stop signs that do nothing to curb through traffic speeds, and put the kinds of filters you are describing -- everywhere!
