I am, by the way, all for lower vehicle speeds. But lower speed limits have to come first - we won't get them by laying down miles of bike lanes that only annoy motorists and encourage them to drive even faster (because there are no cyclists slowing traffic to a safe limit).

Personally, I think all roads other than freeways ought to be limited to 20mph. Britain has a campaign called "20 is Plenty", but it only focuses on residential areas, probably because getting legislators (who are mostly drivers) to pass reduced speed limits is like pulling teeth.
