How did the idea of a lane reduction come about in the first place, and why? Who backed the idea, in order for it to get this far?

The change of a pedestrian in a crosswalk getting hit by a car is much higher on a 4 lane street than a 2 lane street. Because of this, Palo Alto is trying to do away with all 4 lane streets that do not have stop lights to protect the crosswalks.
