@pxtl: as nobrainer points out, slowing down traffic on Aberdeen would not reduce "congestion" per se. But it would make the street a lot more friendly for local uses. And drivers would react to increased travel times by changing behavior. For example, more doctors at st. Joe's might take Madeleine's lead and actually live near the hospital.

A lot of the demand for high-volume streets in this city is driven by planning decisions that encourage people to live far from where they work. It's a vicious cycle, and it's nice to see someone trying to break it.
