In your article 'Turning Drab Into Fab' (NCE last week) I see that 'the aim is to create public spaces where the car driver feels out of place and an intruder'.
I do hope that this will work, but I have my doubts.
I fear that the British car driver mentality will prevail and that the measures will be treated merely as obstacles to the drivers' desire to make good progress from A to B, even if that means travelling at inappropriate speeds.
Time, of course, will tell, but the efforts of engineers over the past 20 years have, for the most part, neither looked good nor worked well for the decent driver or the inconsiderate.
