Yes, there is a traffic design engineering standard for safe streets. An engineering standard that is routinely violated in Hamilton. This is the Dutch CROW traffic design engineering standard.

There is an overview in English here:

And here is the link to order the Design Manual for Bicycle Traffic. Which the government of The Netherlands has conveniently translated into English. And costs 90 euros. Pricy, but how much is human life worth?

Every Dutch street project is designed using these engineering standards. Which is why their infrastructure is consistently excellent everywhere.

These engineering standards can easily be used to transform Hamilton in the same way that Dutch cities were redesigned. All one has to do is take the manual off the shelf and use it!
