Newton North Traffic Issue

I have a letter-to-the-editor in this week's Tab in which I weigh in -- just a little -- on the Newton North ceremonial entrance issue. I'll post a link when my letter is online. My letter is online. Search for "safety and comfort."

In short, I argue that a traffic design has to meet more than a safety threshold. A technically safe design should not be implemented unless it also creates a comfortable experience, especially for pedestrians.
