Just put one foot in front of the other

Years ago I went to a talk on walkable communities and this article just took me back to that presentation. Like then, I would still agree that pedestrians are considered second class citizens in many cities.

The article I’m talking about is ‘Why are intersections designed for cars instead of pedestrians?¬† by Lloyd Alter over at Treehugger. I love the idea of having the drivers push the button to go instead of the people walking and if you agree, then check out the original article entitled¬† “About those pesky pedestrian crossing buttons…by Rachel Quednau over at Strong Towns.

Sincerely-
