    It's not the best thing, but on the flip side, I don't really expect the guy from Wyoming to understand non-automotive transportation. The opinion of the guy from NY, California, New Jersey, and other states with urban/suburban areas would be more interesting.

    I like the photo comment below the article, "if you need a sign to tell people to slow down, you designed the street wrong."

    I agree with this. We have a number of streets that have huge lane widths, and people go fast as a result. They need to make it look like people should drive slower. Wouldn't hurt if they would make the traffic on the arterial roads travel more smoothly, but they think that stopping everyone at every intersection is making things safer. In actual fact, it drives people onto neighborhood streets and encourages dangerous speeding trying to make the next light.
