The other way to do it, of course, is to plant trees in the road rather than
on the pavement.  That'll make the bounders slow down!!  We have old
photographs here showing some old Chestnuts actually growing in the road
just off the side of the pavement.  Needless to say, they've now gone and
been replaced by (not) fastigiate hornbeam, mundanely sitting on the
pavement.  Highway engineers just aren't imaginative these days!

There's at least one street in York that has trees in the road rather
than the pavement.
