Traffic calming schemes aren't only found in the First World. If you go to Ghana, a place that is definitely Cindy Margolisless, you'll find that traffic calming is discussed there also:

Dr Richard Anane, Road Transport Minister has said that the Ghana Highway Authority (GHA) in 2004, selected Apeguso, a settlement along the Accra-Ho highway, as one of the pilot sites for the implementation of the new traffic calming scheme, intended to replace rumble strips on major highways....

The Minister said Apeguso had over the years experienced a series of pedestrian-related accidents and fatalities due to excessive speeding.

The minister said out of fear and anxiety the inhabitants erected earth speed ramps across the highway, worsening the traffic safety situation in the town.

He said the GHA intervened by installing speed limit signs as a temporary measure and in 2004 implemented the new traffic-calming scheme, which involved some elements including the installation of town gate signs at both ends of the town to alert road users of the presence of a settlement.

He said the scheme also involved the "installation of reboundable delineators along the road's centre line to prevent overtaking, in addition to narrowing the carriageway."...
