Give-Way Street

Give-way streets are two-way streets, usually with on-street parking, that are so narrow that motorists are compelled to drive slowly, attentively, and courteously. One motorist must give way when another motorist approaches from the opposite direction.

For these reasons — and in contrast to conventional wisdom — give-way streets are the safest of all street designs.
