What it appear to boil down to is what is the purpose of a street?

If your answer is to get a car from point A to point B as quickly as possible then the solution is obvious. Higher speeds, greater pedestrian restrictions!

If your answer is that they're a means of connecting places, then your answer becomes a little different. What about bicycles? Pedestrians crossing?

How much time do you think you save by driving 1 km at 60 km/h instead of 30 km/h? Keep in mind that it's not the main thoroughfares that are being dropped, it's residential areas.
