Traffic Calmed

This video from StreetFilm shows the extensive traffic calming efforts taken by one beach community in Australia.

"This city really is wonderful. Art, happiness, liveliness, and good walking everywhere (between daily runs and walking I am averaging about 10 miles per day). The incredible thing is the TRAFFIC CALMING. Unless you are on a real highway no matter where you go there is inventive and unique traffic calming. If you are on a main road, ANYWHERE you turn off you hit textured crosswalks, gateways, speed bumps, just really the way it should be."
