Pedestrian Workshop 10/17 from Keri Caffrey on Vimeo.
Commute Orlando opined:
If traffic were slower, many more motorists would be willing to yield since they wouldn’t be as afraid of being rear-ended. I understand FDOT’s concern about placing crosswalks on higher speed roads. The solution, however, is very simple; lower the design speed and speed limits in pedestrian areas. The right to build high-speed arterials through pedestrian-active urban areas needs to be revoked.UPDATE 12/17/10: The teenager killed on Aloma was intoxicated, according to media reports yesterday. His impaired judgment undoubtedly played a significant role in his death. One can't blame his death entirely on the road design. Tragic.
