Perhaps we need to weed out the personal bias from the traffic dept. As in make them sign that their decisions are based on their personal beliefs and not available evidence. Hound them until they do, or follow safer pedestrian designs, or resign.

There are plenty of ways to make roads safer for pedestrians, like - enforce speed limits -lower speed limits +/- increased fines on any road where the sidewalk is immediately adjacent to the road without a parking buffer - more, more 2 way street conversions - driver hitting pedestrian is guilty until proven otherwise - educate, e.g. signs saying drive like every pedestrian is your child
