My colleague at McMaster, Michel Grignon, made the straightforward case (in an article cited by Ben) that we have a simple solution to reducing deaths and injuries on our streets: just lower vehicle speeds through changes to traffic rules and road design.

The message is that this is not a conceptually difficult or scientifically challenging problem, like ending poverty. stopping war or curing cancer. We already know what to do. It is a political problem of deciding that quick and convenient motor vehicle passage through our cities doesn't trump every other concern.
