Seriously, no one should be flying down a street that fast, that close to the curb, when there are that many people around.

Agreed. So then the problem is more the driver than the arena they're imposing their entrenched psychological 'issues' within? (Acknowledging that even for me, a one-way street initiates the 'Zoom-zoom!' gene.)

Bad drivers are bad drivers. Never mind the direction of the street.

I believe we should have regular (every two/five years) road testing and forced driver-ed once you've gotten your license. It still galls me that we can have lost approximately 3,000,000 North Americans since the end of WWII to traffic accidents and we've little more than blinked. Only because it's automobile-based, the sacrosanct industry, that so little has been done. (Yes, I know the current numbers are down, that the trend is less people being sacrificed. They're making safer cars, not safer drivers.)

Think of all the fees that could be generating revenue for livability issues...
