    Anyone have commentary/observations on how Shared Streets went? Didn’t get to Summer Streets at all this year, was especially interested in finding out how the Shared Streets experiment downtown went. Perfectly fine, I bet! Am especially interested in hearing about driver behavior (if any drivers even bothered entering the area).

    Oh wait… that’s called Communism. And it only applies in the USA when it benefits car drivers.
