Biking Rules!

The Biking Rules campaign in New York City just came out with a great line of stickers.  I really like them and ordered an “I rest at reds” sticker.  This is a great counterpoint to my last post.  NYC is doing great stuff!

New York City– Uncivil Street

This is a great video of just about everyone acting badly.  I love the box-graphics that show the conflicts.  Bicycles appear to be extra bad– but really pedestrians are jay-walking and cars are routinely nudging in to crosswalks full of pedestrians.

Street Design and Knowing thy Neighbor

A new StreetFilm on the amazing research of Donald Appleyard really brings to the front and center, the effect of traffic on community.  People who live on heavily trafficked streets don’t know as many neighbors, and don’t even know very well what their street looks like.  
Urban planners talk about the mobility vs. the place function of a street.  Is the street more about moving traffic or is it more about being a great and beautiful place to hang-out?  In the competition between getting around and this quality of a place… we need to strike a balance not only between the many users of the street, but between the traffic and the neighbors that live next to it.
