"What's worse is that the traffic engineers want the average speed on minor arterials to be 50-60 km/h, and the average speed on major arterials to be 60-80 km/h. In other words, they are designing urban arterials for freeway speeds, and they actually want average speeds to be illegal!"

Freeway speeds are much higher than this. Generally designed to 120 km/h. It's not about wanting to have higher speeds, so don't make that mistake. Should we design streets for the exact posted limit, with no factors of safety? If anyone has a degree in traffic engineering, let me know...then I'll start to listen a bit more.
