One small suggestion regarding "naked streets". The person attributed with
developing the idea, Hans Monderman, tends to use the term "shared space"
rather than "naked streets". I think that "shared space" is probably a
slightly more marketable name. I have also heard it called "post traffic
calming" and "third-generation traffic calming". However, it seems that the
people who have worked hard to make the concept a reality seem to prefer
"shared space". There is a Wikipedia entry for shared space, if anyone is

of the paragraph headed "Driver cooperation" where reference might be made to
mutual cooperation among ALL road users as encouraged by "naked streets" - and
indeed give a link to examples of this idea which has behind it the idea of no
traffic exceeding 17mph in order to allow negotiation between different road
users via eye contact.
