I wanna get that radar thing for John N. on the stretch by Bennetto & St. Lawrence schools. Some days it's a drag race there.

My experience living in the north end, with a house directly in front of a 30km/h sign is that speed limits don't matter. The only thing that will actually change driver behaviour, even in a so-called "Family and child friendly neighbourhood" is physical design changes to the streets--i.e. more parking, extending concrete curbs or sidewalks to narrow intersections, and bike lanes.

I think the best thing residents of downtown hoods have done is to take an attitude to own our streets. Drivers from in and out of our 'hoods can whine all they want, but local health and safety should trump getting from A to B 45 seconds quicker.
