"Street" defined

Street: A covenant among users of a public thoroughfare that the greatest deference and encouragement shall be shown those who move slowly, those who share, and those who travel with modest amounts of personal tare.  Good engineering and infrastructure are necessary but not sufficient for proper functioning.  The real foundation of “street” is commitment to human access.  Accommodations for the movement and storage of automobiles and other bulky private property rank a distant second in allocation of space, time, and the hearts of the people.
