What is going to cause slower traffic? Posting signs? I think we can agree that that won't work. The street design needs to change to affect 'natural' traffic speed. I say natural because the street section will affect the speed a driver is comfortable driving. 120kph feels very different on a 2 lane country road. The same way that 80kph on Main St isn't the same on Locke. The counter-intuitive step of reducing the size of the lanes, adding additional 'distractions' (ie, bike lanes), will naturally reduce the speed that cars travel.
