  1. Kudos to Boston city leaders for lowering their speed limit! There is going to be lots of push back from motorists, but this has the potential to a more effective way of reducing pedestrians fatalities and serious injuries than just about any other policy they could implement.

  2. Regarding the “Car-Free” neighborhood in Mannheim, Germany. The developer of this new suburb is “Traumhaus” which is German for “Dreamhouse”.
