Abstract

Transportation and land use planners generally agree that high traffic volumes are incompatible with a good residential street. Danger to pedestrians and bicyclists and emissions from traffic, such as high noise levels and poor air quality, are the obvious reasons. In addition, traffic is also a barrier to social interaction. Thus, we studied the physical and traffic characteristics of a total of nine streets, along with resident responses to a questionnaire survey. This is a report on the study design and our findings.
