Exactly what does a speed limit accomplish, other than an admission that the road was designed for faster speeds and that there's nothing on it worth stopping for? If you build complete streets and line them with dense amenities, people will slow down on them anyway.

Two thoughts on this: if we're talking about a street where there's any pedestrian or bicycle traffic whatsoever, then speed limits become very, very relevant. To look at it as a matter of driver choice or some such construct is to demonstrate a huge (social, moral, whatever) blind-spot.
