NYTimes: “Making Cities Safer for Cyclists and Pedestrians”

To have a more sus­tain­able, liv­able city, we must make the streets safe and acces­si­ble for pedes­tri­ans and bik­ers – cars should not be allowed to rule the streets. Check out the NYTimes — Room For Debate on the issue: “Mak­ing Cities Safer for Cyclists and Pedes­tri­ans.” The par­tic­i­pants are Peter Calthor­pe, author of “Urban­ism in the Age of Cli­mate Change,” David V. Her­li­hy, author of “Bicy­cle: The His­to­ry,” Tom Van­der­bilt, author of “Traf­fic: Why We Dri­ve the Way We Do,” and Tracey L. Mear­es, Wal­ton Hale Hamil­ton Pro­fes­sor of Law, Yale Law School.
