Academic turns city into a social experiment - Harvard Gazette, March 11, 2004

Also here: Pedestrians are also targets for "mime behavioral therapy." Pickpockets, jaywalkers, and other lawbreakers are liable to be followed down the street by the mime artists, who imitate their every move. The idea is that they will be embarrassed into changing their ways, much to the hilarity of the large crowds that gather to watch the antics.
Also: Current Bogota Mayor Enrique Penalosa visited Bangkok last March to promote Bus Rapid transit.
