Lessons from NYC

I came across the video below, a few years old, about Janette Sadik-Khan, the remarkable head of New York City's Department of Transportation.  It's worthwhile for the lessons it offers smaller urban areas.  The video shows "before and after" examples of how re-engineered thoroughfares--including those implementing new public space and innovative floating and separated bike lanes--affect driver behavior.
