So this image was included in an excellent article presented by Strong Towns. I like this one on so many levels and the creator of it should be applauded.
What are some of those levels?
- Well I absolutely get a kick out of tricked out trucks when they are rolling around well outside their natural environment. Seriously what are you doing? Mudding on Main St??
- As a pedestrian I relate. Light cycles and sight lines absolutely favor the auto and NOT the walker!
- As a parent I definitely relate. Tied to the next one I invite folks to sit in on a class that looks at the science all across the age spectrum of pedestrian vs vehicle.
- As a guy who logged over 12 years as an EMT/Paramedic and responded to more than my share of motor vehicle vs pedestrian “accidents”.
