this street is wide enough for parking and 2-way traffic. It was also wide enough for parking on both sides and 1-lane of one-way traffic. But we never do that in Hamilton. It's all about keeping cars at the highest speeds possible.

I just returned from DC and every single residential street has been converted to one-way in order to allow parking on both sides, plus bike lanes. You drive along a major thoroughfare for dozens and dozens of blocks and every single side street is like this:

There was parking-protected cycle tracks on the busier, major streets and bike lanes like this on every single side street. I've never seen so many bike lanes in my life.
