Good program :thumbup:
They had Bill Wilkinson Executive Director, National Center for Bicycling and Walking plus others.
Also had Bike and Pedestrian manager for Seattle
Discussions roamed over the place including pedestrians being alert to their surroundings, lack of law enforcement, overlooking non-car needs in planning, design and maintenance of roads and sidewalks. Also touched on public transportation, automobile commercials, sense of community and loss of civility, public health issues.
Some interesting nuggets - factoids, if you will. Tampa - St. Petersburg, Florida was the worst city for pedestrian danger, followed by Atlanta and New Orleans at number 10. Looks like we've got members in some of those cities….Reportedly, only 10 percent of kids walk or bike to school, that number shoots up to 25% if the kids live within a mile of the school.
Very good show. Hope you can catch the repeat tonight.
