That's an overly-complicated and expensive solution to a non-problem. 1,000 or 1,200 cars an hour during rush hour is nothing a two-lane street (with left turn lane) can't handle. 1,200 vehicles per hour during rush hour on a two-lane street is basically a "C" or "D" Level of Service, which is Traffic Engineering's LoS objective for city streets.

In any case, there's nothing wrong with expecting drivers to slow down a little bit when driving on a busy street during rush hour. Slower automobile traffic actually makes the street safer and more accommodating for people who choose to walk or bike instead.
