Neighborhood success brings traffic

There was a long conversation at Tuesday's South Perry Business and Neighborhood Association meeting about traffic on South Perry - especially between 8th Avenue and 14th Avenue.
During farmers market days that area has a lot of parked cars and a lot of foot traffic.
Everyone agreed it's wonderful to see that much activity in the neighborhood, yet there were also many concerns: the crosswalk paint is worn almost completely off and there are no signs at the crosswalks (except the school crosswalk); the speed limit is 20 mph, but motorists often go faster, especially during rush hour (which coincides with farmers market hours); the intersection at 11th Avenue and South Perry is especially jammed during the busiest times.
Suggested solutions: temporarily getting one of those "your speed is this much" signs (there's one on Rockwood Boulevard right now) and putting traffic cones out in the middle of the crosswalks during farmers market hours. Slow down signs at each end of the business district were also suggested.

What are your thoughts?
