    Why cities should not be afraid to design pedestrian and bicycle friendly streets

    Opinion why communities should not be afraid of legal action from designing roads differently than AASHTO guidelines. I thought it was a very considerate and studied look at design mandates on communities.

    regarding AASHTO ...." In particular, the (2004) Green Book states that in designing "local" residential streets, a streetbuilder's overriding consideration is to foster a safe and pleasant environment whereas the convenience of the motorist is secondary."
