The "woonerf" is an interesting concept, compared to shared space. Here autos are really on the defensive and it would be a great idea for some residential streets, where kids could actually play in the street. I remember where I lived on in Canada, where, at certain times of the year, the street became a street hockey arena. It was kind of a wonderful thing to see... kids out playing instead of glued to the tv... but cars didn't see if that way. This scenario would make a great woonerf... cars are restricted to 7 kmph.
