Walking

No matter which form of transportation you choose--car, transit, bike, or boat--everyone is eventually a pedestrian for some portion of every trip. Too often the pedestrian experience is overlooked in land use and facility design.

Write on these topics:
  • Sidewalk requirements on new development vs. sidewalk fund for completing high-priority segments.
  • Advantages of asphalt sidewalks. (Can build more with less money, softer on the feet; common outside the USA.)
  • Traffic calming strategies
  • Lower speed limits for residential streets, especially those lacking continuous sidewalks.
  • Residential street design & woonerfs
  • Parking lot design for pedestrians
  • Pet Peeve: cars parking on the sidewalk
