The difference between Wood Street in the North End and Duke Street in the Durand, is the difference in the size of the populations living in those neighbourhoods and using those streets.

I'm still a bit confused as to why we can't trust people to follow simple speed limits, but do trust them to come at us head-on on narrower streets than many are used to driving on. The streets were used by far fewer cars before they went two-way, and were, in fact, actually laid out in the mid-19th century for horse and carriages.

Why not try reducing the speed limit first, adding a few dozen more all-way stops while we're at it, and seeing if that helps calm the traffic. People seem to respect stop signs, so let's add a lot of them and solve one problem while not causing others.
