We all know the horrible feeling of hearing that yet another person has been hit and killed by a driver while crossing a local street. Maybe you’re familiar with the intersection where it happened, and you’ve felt unsafe yourself when walking, biking, or driving there...
What happens next is telling: In most cities, local leaders simply shrug off the death as an “accident” and move on. But that doesn’t have to be the case. You and your neighbors can immediately implement tactical, low-cost changes to dangerous streets in your community.
In this presentation, Charles Marohn, president of Strong Towns, walks you through how and why you should fix dangerous streets in your town. You’ll also learn from Krista Nightengale, executive director of Better Block, about the projects she’s worked on to implement such changes to powerful effect in several cities.
