My only issue with it was the way the residents were given permission to put up the gate. If you agree to buy the street and take car of the maintenance then I still see no issue. It looks at if there are streets close-by you may drive thru if you want to go that direction.  I am mostly for it if they did it because of crime issues, because speeders can be slowed down with speed bumps.

I think the problem is that they are 1) blocking off a public street and forcing more traffic through other areas and 2) if they have the right to block off their street to niccas then everyone should be able to have that right and 3) if everyone had that right then the city would not be able to function.

It is a row of doctors and lawyers. Should they be able to buy their way into a utopia?

Sure there are gated communities but I think that's different because those estates were planned as gated communities and nothing's on the other side. But just putting up a gate because you don't want people driving though? They are pretty much changing the blueprint of the city. Not so say that I am completely against it but I am responding to people who said they don't see the issue.

I didn't read the whole thing but I remember a street I used to live on in Pasadena eventually had gates go up.  I heard the gates locked at a certain time so no one could drive down this street. *shrugs*  I have no idea what it was supposed to do but the gates went up after crime on the block got so bad. I guess it was to protect the residents.  Kinda like a buzzing door.  You have to buzz folks in and they had to be walking.
 
hard to believe because the neighborhood was so family like but I guess it turned into Beirut in the 90's.

I don't have an issue with this. They are going to buy the street and maintain it themselves correct? There is a part of my neighborhood that was constantly hit with home breakins because the criminals had actually made a path for an easy getaway. The break-ins were only happening in the areas accessible by the path and some houses were broken into as many as 3-4 times. The gate will not keep people out but it certainly is a deterrent and makes their homes less accessible. Think about how bad crime must have been if the residents came together and all agreed to (1) Buy the street (2) Put up a gate( gates are NOT cheap) (3) Maintain their streets which includes paying for their own trash collection.

I guess whomever paid more money will win, and most likely they will have to take down the gate.

not sure what purpose they serve other than keep out through traffic
criminals can get past the guards easily. it's not like it's ft. knox
 
That's why you always have a coon on the gate.
