A Woonerf, or "Living Street"

The Dutch term "woonerf," meaning "living street," has been adopted directly by some English-language publications, according to Wikipedia. In the UK, these areas are called home zones. In the US, complete streets are a distinct concept where equal priority is given to all modes of transportation including automobiles, bicycles, and pedestrians. Techniques include shared space, traffic calming, and low speed limits.
