this is a no-brainer. Drive down Main Street and then Graham Avenue. Or for a more equal comparison - 2 residential side streets: one with and one without trees along the edge. The difference in our natural response is quite amazing. I find the same is also true of streets with homes and buildings built closer to the sidewalk as long as there is a narrow 'traffic right of way'. For example - Florence Ave near Victoria Park or Pearl Street North. Compare them to a typical south Mountain residential street. Street width and the 'built environment' including trees, make a huge difference in driver behaviour.
