WMFE-FM's Mark Simpson reported on Winter Park's resolution at THIS LINK. He interviewed me for the news report in front of an apartment complex across from a Lynx bus stop on Lee Road--a four lane divided highway. There's no painted crosswalk in the highway--or any relatively safe place to cross to the bus stop--for more than a half-mile in either direction.
During the interview, a lady in an electric wheelchair zoomed into the thoroughfare while cars whizzed by her back and forth at 45-50 mph.

FDOT has adopted Complete Streets in its 2060 long-range plan. For the lady on the electric wheelchair, we can't wait that long.
