    Where it says no graffiti or vandalism, it should explicitly except street art. Good street art makes walking a neighborhood more pleasurable.

    Excellent idea, all the comments in the animation reflect what people want.

    Fear of crime, fear of graffiti, wishing for more police around – yeah we’re not racist or anything…

      You’re the one associating crime and graffiti to race… By the way wich one?

    Very cool visual. Adding medians with trees and other things also help to slow down traffic in bigger roads as you probably know. Plus they give pedestrians a nice break. Hopefully we still start gravitating towards streets more like this.

    Useful tool to educate elected officials, walkers and drivers.

    This is a great summary of many of the key issues that makes streets inviting to pedestrians. We often forget that we need to create an environment for all age groups. If the street works for children, then it often works for everyone else.

    Takes a lot of human diversity and density to make streets active and safe even at night. A main street can be wonderful unless their neighbourhood has become too gentrified: such streets feel too deserted at night.
