A neckdown is a traffic calming strategy: narrowing the width of a street at an intersection to slow vehicles. A sneckdown is a neckdown created by untrod or plow-piled snow. A post at the Transportation Alternatives blog from February 2014 discusses how sneckdowns reveal that our streets give cars more space than they need. [ WHAT SNOW REVEALS ABOUT STREETS].
Never waste a good crisis, people of New England (and other snowy places). Post and follow sneckdown photos on Twitter: #sneckdowns. And use this evidence to demonstrate that cars don’t need all that precious urban space.
