Here's Main Street right in front of City Hall:

Main Street Highway

Five unimpeded lanes of traffic, running right through the heart of downtown.

I don't even know what to say to people who claim this isn't a problem or, alternately, that its benefits outweigh its costs. After spending a lot of time walking on, across and around Main Street over the years, I have a visceral understanding of how awful it is for pedestrians - and, hence, for an urban economy and culture based around the presence of pedestrians.
