If you lived on Herkimer with your kids you would want it to be 0% above. As a resident of Herkimer St I routinely see cars speeding literally like they are racing. We NEED traffic calming. Herkimer is full of young families and I really hope city council doesn't have a tombstone mentality when it comes to implementing improvements. In my mind the best we can hope for is a parking protected bike lane that would narrow the street enough to slow traffic. That is between Dundurn and Queen mind. East of Queen should be a two way bike lane on the order of the Cannon lanes. Aiden Johnson has been fairly silent on this. Kind of missing McHattie at this point...

Oh, and as far as the 15% goes you have to account for the observer effect since the sign indicated to the subjects that measurements were being taken. I'd like to see the same study done with no speed display visible to the drivers.
