The examples from London provide some interesting possibilities for balancing the needs of different road users without compromising much on the part of any one user.

    Yes, that is what I found most encouraging about this video and the projects it describes – they do not prioritize the automobile above all else. I hope to see more of this in other places, and I too, wish we could have more of it here in Arizona.
