The article focuses on the importance of the livability of guiding design principles for building neighborhood residential streets in the U.S. The street is a place where drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists engage in informal negotiations over who is in charge. Planners should design streets that incorporate traffic calming devices and placemaking elements such as street furniture, play areas and land scaping. The shared streets cane to be known as residential yards, making the point that neighborhood streets should serve homes rather than automobiles.
