I think Tom already shared this below, but here's a link to a Flickr group I created for sharing examples of the problem: www.flickr.com/groups/2283169@...

Do you think the problem is still as bad, Patrick? Or getting any better? Has there been any increased enforcement?

I think roundabouts and diverters would go a long way towards solving this problem. In Berkeley, diverters created great streets (cul-de-sacs) and focused traffic onto streets that were better designed for vehicles. People on foot, on bikes, and emergency vehicles are all able to pass the diverters. They don't prevent people from driving on the street and the people who live there can still park their cars on their block. It reduces the number of 4-way intersections and reduces the need for unnecessary stop signs for people in cars and on bicycles, where most collisions occur. Here's some more information: www.ci.berkeley.ca.us/contentd...
