    Its a wider road than King Street. OTOH the massing of the buildings is already starting to give it an urban appearance, which also contributes to traffic calming, IIUC.

    I feel your pain. We have a lot of 30 km per hour (18 mph) zones in Germany with speed cameras. These are not school zones, just residential neighborhoods, some on quite wide streets. I'm just waiting for the Consulate to get notification of my ticket on my bike.

    That's ok, I still get passed by 100% of the car drivers. It was fun at midnight having all the speeders on Adicksallee slow down for the two block 30 km speed limit in the work zone for the Frankfurt School of Fiance and Management just before you get to the city (Google maps mistranslates "Stadt" as "state") police headquarters. Props to Frankfurt for putting in a west bound bike lane there when they closed the sidewalk and cycletrack there for the construction. I think there is a speed camera.

    WABA just published a blog post about the Quincy Protected Bike Lane. It includes a link to send a note to the County. My comment noted that I hadn't ever deliberately visited Ballston in the five years I've lived here and I've been three times since the PBL was installed and have spent money each time.
