Make Me Feel Safe: Achieving Safe Modes of Transportation

12:30 p.m. | Wednesday, February 15, 2017

While it’s common to think that safety depends on law enforcement and self-control, groups like Vision Zero are demonstrating that safety can also be achieved through good design. Hear an in-depth discussion about the many dimensions of safety and how we can make people who bike, walk or take transit feel protected.
