Since transportation is completely relevant to Jalopnik, I thought this was interesting.
Streets that safely accommodate everyone, from motorists to cyclists, pedestrians, and transit users — complete streets — have become policy for many American communities, having been implemented in more than 700 local jurisdictions and states around the country. A new bill in Washington attempts, again, to make complete streets the federal standard as well.
Kind of like what the rest of the world has been doing for decades.
I must say I do like the aesthetics of complete streets.
