"1.Eliminate cut-through "rat-running" car traffic in residential areas."

This is important for so many reasons. I do not understand why this hasn't been done.

What are the barriers? In newer suburban developments, great lengths are gone to prevent through traffic on residential streets when designing the network (unfortunately, this also means they often have huge barriers to walking, too). Based on that, I assume that people understand that it’s undesirable to have fast-moving car traffic on residential streets, and that it’s an impediment to safety, enjoyment, and choice in how one gets around. So why aren’t we doing it? How can we make it happen?
