"Rub and Jostle"

-- or -- How Traffic Affects Neighborhoods and Social Interaction.

Two films -- 41 years apart -- that identify the same problem with contemporary streets:  cars.  In the earlier film, the solutions of Ulrich Franzen are campy, adorable, unfeasible, and stink of Robert Moses.  In the modern film, Donald Appleyard has taken what Jane Jacobs served up 40-odd years ago and made it sexy and sensible.  Both are worth a view.  Enjoy.
