Reducing lanes reduces traffic

UM Urban Planning professor Jonathan Levine explains how reducing traffic lanes on major downtown streets can reduce traffic and make downtown a better place. I have met Prof. Levine through work; he has a grad student doing a study on driving patterns using extensive driving data we have gathered from various studies. The goal is to find out how the built environment affects driving patterns, and how changes can be made to reduce the number of miles driven.
