  • To tame the street so all street users can share in its function for their specific needs, We have to reduce the vehicle operating speeds.
  • A schematic diagram of some of the components of an urban thoroughfare design. Point out a few of the components. Explain the complexity of integrating the components, particularly in constrained right-of-way.

    • 11. Why do we need Complete Streets? Economic vitality and viability Traffic safety Travel choices Sustainable access and travel
    • 12. Three Patterns for Complete Streets1. Connected and Complete Street NetworkComplete streets function as part of a connected and complete streetnetwork with different types of streets serving different functions2. Convenience, Comfort and Safety for VulnerableRoad UsersComplete streets are convenient, safe and comfortable for all, but especiallyfor vulnerable road users3. Sense of PlaceComplete streets are places. Never just conduits for travel
