Guerrilla Traffic Calming Efforts Elicit Mixed Responses
An article by J.B. Wogan samples examples from around the country of residents who have taken to implementing traffic calming measures in their neighborhoods. Residents in cities as distinct as Baltimore, Maryland, and New Haven, Connecticut, have recently undertaken actual urbanism efforts.
But some cities haven’t reacted well to outbreaks of tactical urbanism. For example, “Muncie, Ind., in 2008 and Vallejo, Calif., last year, have arrested people who painted crosswalks without permission,” writes Wogan.
