The point of the article is to demonstrate that busy downtown streets can be safe streets. The goal was to show what streets such as Main Street downtown could look like. Not too many front yards on Main Street in downtown Hamilton!

If you want to see how to transform for safety a neighbourhood of single family dwellings with front yards and backyards, you do not have to go very far. Just to the Toronto Islands. If you want to see a new, modern suburb, take a look at Houten in The Netherlands or Vauban in Germany.

The point is that we can build or rebuild all parts of Hamilton in accordance with the Second Transportation Revolution to make them safe and better places to live. Even semi-rural areas, such as where Jasmin Hanif was killed can be made safe for children to go to school. An example of that is Culemborg in The Netherlands.

All of Hamilton can be made safe and a great place to live for children and all other people. We just need the courage to do it!
