What makes a really good street? As Jane Jacobs pointed out, streets are not neatly organised and, being such complex organisations, they frequently defy attempts to understand the organisational principles on which they work. In the context of reducing the dominance of motor vehicles on our streets, traffic engineers and urban designers are moving away from streets that are highly engineered, tightly regulated and expensively controlled, and which frequently segregate different classes of users, to spaces that facilitate integration and a mix of activities.
