I live in a 1900's-era streetcar neighborhood with classic street grid. Trouble is, people tend to barrel through at well above the posted 30 mph speed limit. Given, they're driving at the speed they feel comfortable, regardless of signs. Most of the streets are gun-barrel straight, hilly and generally over 40 feet wide, making speeding a cinch.
Aside from mini-roundabouts, chicanes, island diverters and visual trickery (i.e. street trees, building taller and closer to sidewalk, on-street parking) that creates "enclosure", anybody have other remedies for a situation like this?
I always enjoy looking back at this photo I took in a Tacoma, WA neighborhood. Still, the street it was on was ridiculous to have a 30 mph limit, since it was an arterial street and on an STEEP hill.
