The introduction of roundabouts will also aid in slowing down traffic. I actually noticed these being built in a new development in Binbrook (one of the few things I liked about the subdivision). Stop signs are often ignored, but roundabouts force a driver to slow down.

As far as timed intersections goes, we'd get nowhere demanding their removal. How about simply changing the timing from one based on 64 km/h to 50? Traffic flow is maintained at a lower rate, there is not reward for high speeds, and those who insist on using Main/King/York/Cannon/Wilson as urban highways will be forced onto the real expressways if they want to maintain travelling times.
