      A vital quote from Better Cities:

      > • Level of Service: Intersections are rated for Level of Service. A level of service ‘A’ provides the fastest flow for traffic and the worst environment for pedestrians, and level ‘F’ is considered a failing score with more wait times and slower movements. In urban environments with high pedestrian usage, it then follows that a level of Service ‘F’ is actually the goal for vehicle movements and is an ‘A’ for pedestrian movements.

      Though the author seems a bit ignorant of cycling issues, overall this is a pretty good article on designing streets for walkability in North America.
