"If I ruled the world" #1 - Lancaster Ave.

I admit that I'd enjoy being a dictator. When I get promoted to the position, my first order of business will be to change the traffic patterns on Lancaster Ave., between Rosemont and Wynnewood PA, from two lanes of traffic each way to one lane in each direction. This would decrease car traffic and make drivers slow down, and with the recovered space, wide sidewalks and bike lanes could be created. Imagine Ardmore and Bryn Mawr with outdoor cafes, walkable downtowns, and appealing public spaces.
