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-
