    Perfectly normal street is narrowed as you approach this one little section, then opens right back up once you pass it. I seen a few of these around town.

    I'm guessing it has something to do with traffic flow, but I have no idea.

    To make people slow down in residential areas, is what I'm thinking.

    This. It approaches a curve and they don't want parallel parking in that section

    I don't think so. It's in the middle of a quiet gated community with HOA rules against parking on the street. A service or delivery guy will just park on the street anyway.

    It's to make people slow down in that community, you dolts. If you're cruising along and all of a sudden the road gets more narrow, you're going to slow down, especially if there's oncoming traffic.

    That doesn't sound right either because there are all these other streets all around the same neighborhood without this narrower thing.

    It's weird that no one knows. We're all just guessing

    @Summer.... cars passing other cars isn't an issue in this neighborhood, that can't be it either

    They do it on both sides of the street in the same place here in a few places. Suddenly the road narrows on both sides. It's to slow traffic.
