Some communities have pursued 'traffic calming' measures such as narrower intersections, on-street parking, street trees, textured crosswalks, etc., to reduce the urge to comfortably speed on city streets. For example, sidewalk "bump outs" allow for more sidewalk space for pedestrians and slow down drivers with a larger sidewalk and a narrower street. Simple things such as writing letters to the editor of your neighborhood and community papers can work. Let drivers know that speeding threatens our sense of community and personal well-being.
