Side-by-side photographs of a highway, left side shows dozens of cars and all the people standing in front who would drive them, and right side shows a single bus  with no other vehicles, and all the people standing in front who would ride in it. Looks like about the same number of people.
Illustration showing four highways, first with 50 pedestrians taking up a fairly small space, second with 50 cyclists taking up about half the space, third with 50 riders on a bus taking up a very small amount of the space, and last 50 cars, taking up the entire space

Travelling on the weekend and got stopped by accidents going and coming - both required adding an extra hour to travel because of detours. Since I quit the other site, I could not do what I normally do and check to see if there were any accident reports. Waze was useless because we were the only ones using it and 511ON.CA had no reports. Winter is coming and the driving delays will soon be here - it would be nice to be able to get traffic info on Mastodon. Suggestions? #traffic #511On

It's been a few weeks since I got hit-and-run while on my bicycle. My bruises are healed now and the residual pain with my knee has thankfully subsided. However, the mental health effects are still strong. My heart races and I dissociate when I think about getting hit, and I have not been able to sleep well because the crash keeps replaying in my head for hours at a time as I lay in bed.

Now, I learn someone else has gotten hit at the same intersection, but today's victim did not survive: https://www.fox6now.com/news/milwaukee-fatal-crash-25th-canal

I didn't take the news very well at first, and I still am not to a degree, but I need to try to break through the mental paralysis and do what I can -- talk to the city, talk to the county, talk to the DNR (owner of the pathway), talk to friends who work at local news outlets, talk to the safer streets organizations, anyone and everyone. I could have easily been killed instead of merely injured a few weeks ago, and this blurb is a harrowing reminder of that, because people *are* getting killed here. I need it to stop; I need it to not happen to anyone else.

Australian ‘Moto-normativity’

Paris was "once clogged with traffic, mayor Anne Hidalgo has waged a war on cars in recent years – including the removal of thousands of parking spots, the introduction of hundreds of bike lanes, planting of thousands of trees and pedestrianisation of certain streets."

"Redesigning our streets for more bikes, pedestrians and non-car uses are logical answers to stubborn societal problems such as poor physical and mental health, road safety, traffic and even loneliness.The car-based urban system cannot sustain itself over the next 100 years."

Designing roads for deaths and injuries - No provisions for fossil fuel free mobility

"In 2022, there were nearly 1,200 road crash deaths in Australia".

"Encouraging people to transition from private car trips to public transport is ...a road safety strategy that has seldom been considered by governments. Rather, the driver, car and road remain the focus."

A “safe system” approach puts an emphasis on building safe road infrastructure for cars, while ignoring urban design changes that de-emphasise the need for cars. We should be encouraging more people to commute by rail, tram and bus (all lower-risk modes per kilometre travelled), while at the same time delivering safe infrastructure for sustainable transport such as bicycles/e-bicycles or walking."

How #Finland Put #Traffic #Crashes on Ice

The Nordic nation’s rate of vehicle fatalities is a fraction of the toll in the #US, despite a harsh climate and ice-covered streets. Here’s how the Finns do traffic safety.

by David Zipper

"The 1960s were a boom time for #Helsinki, Finland’s capital and largest city. Rising postwar incomes enabled a growing number of residents to purchase a car; the number of vehicles registered in the city tripled in just seven years. #Gridlock inevitably followed.

"To manage traffic and plot its future, the city of Helsinki commissioned a transportation master plan, co-authored by the US company Wilbur Smith & Associates and the Finnish firm Pentti Polvinen ky. In 1968, the consultants delivered their eye-watering proposal: nearly 200 miles of new highways in the Helsinki region, with much of downtown leveled to create space for high-speed motorways. The city’s existent streetcar system would be scrapped.

"The Finnish response to that vision was an emphatic ei (“no”). According to the newspaper Helsingin Sanomat, the rejected 1968 plan 'has become a kind of dystopia, an extreme example of what car-driven planning can lead to.'

"Instead of committing its future to the automobile, as so many US cities did in that era, Helsinki kept its streetcars and embarked on a massive transit expansion. The city constructed the world’s northernmost subway, which opened in 1982. As of 2016, roughly a quarter of urban trips in Finland occur on foot, over 9% by transit, and 7.5% by bike. (In the Helsinki metropolitan area, which has a population about 1.3 million, those numbers are even higher.) One in seven Finns live in rural areas, roughly equivalent to the US share.

"The Finnish transportation system is as impressive for its safety as it is for its multimodality. Only 219 people died on Finnish roads in 2021, or four per 100,000 residents — just one-third the US rate. And Finland’s roadways are growing steadily safer. Fatalities plunged 50% between 2001 and 2019, when Helsinki made international news for going an entire year without a single pedestrian or cyclist fatality. (Last year there were two, down from 22 in 1990.) Like its neighbors #Norway and #Sweden, birthplace of the #VisionZero traffic safety movement, Finland’s roads today are safer than they have been in decades — unlike so many of the US cities that have tried to adopt Vision Zero principles. 

"As I’ve written previously in CityLab, the US is an outlier in global #RoadSafety: Americans are now at least twice as likely to die in a vehicle crash as residents of Canada, France and Japan (among many other countries).

"But the safety record of Finland, a country associated with empty, rural roads and cold, dark weather, is particularly impressive. Here are a few reasons why so few people die in crashes in this Nordic nation.

"Set Stricter Limits

"Soon after dumping Helsinki’s car-centric 1968 plan, Finnish authorities embarked on a decades-long campaign to slow motor vehicles. 'In urban environments, there has been a steady decrease in maximum road speed,' said Heikki Liimatainen, a professor of transport and logistics at Tampere University. 'In the 1970s, it was normally 50 kilometers per hour in cities; then in 2000, it went down to 40 km/h. Now, more than half of our urban streets have a 30 km/h limit.'

"In Helsinki, city officials leverage street design to reinforce lower speed limits. 'We deliberately have narrow lanes, so the driver doesn’t feel comfortable,' said Reetta Putkonen, the director of Helsinki’s transportation planning division. 'Three and a half meters is a normal lane width, even 3.2. We also use trees and bushes to push people to go slower.' For comparison, in the US many lanes are 12 feet (3.7 meters) wide."

tl;dr:

1. reduce cars with multimodal transit
2. traffic calming (“We simply slowed down the cars.”)
3. steep speeding fines that scale with income
4. a formal inquiry to every fatal crash
5. consistent bike lane & sidewalk upkeep (especially in the winter)

The centre of Cork City will become a traffic free zone this Saturday for a few hours. The area visible in the photo above will still have cars in it, but it’ll be interesting to see what effect this will have on the day.

Visible in the background, of course, is “What is home?” by Dublin-based artist Asbestos.

This photo makes me feel uneasy.

Car traffic and a white van crossed a bridge in front of me, going through a junction with traffic lights, while the "What is Home?" mural on South Main Street is visible in the background.

My new hobby is walking down my residential street where people drive too fast and crossing at every intersection just when a car is coming in order to force them to stop.

What should I call this? Aggressive crosswalking?

I was just now, literally minutes ago, talking to a friend about rethinking #mobility & lamenting how "mobility" tends to be mis-interpreted as "cars & their infrastructure as we know it".

I'm not saying Pontevedra is the holy grail or any such thing - but every one of these five takeaways contradict a sticky belief about changing literally anything about our current #car-centered mobility model.

I've had a traffic calming idea for suburban streets and I want to run it by you all. I'm not convinced I love it.

We know that drivers are more careful on narrower streets. So if we parked as far away from the kerb as we can get away with legally, that'll narrow the road and slow traffic.

Bellingen - Roads to nowhere, Pt.1/2

Scenic Bellingen has been in a road widening frenzy to accommodate industrial logging and clear felling operations to 'get the stuff out of here'. For nearly a year heavy fossil fuel machinery has been making the roads (Roses Road, Gleniffer Road, North Bank Road) fit for an extractivist industry, ignoring residents and biodiverse habitats along the cemented arteries.

In town gigantic haulage trucks (2 B-double trucks) shoot through the bottleneck of the main cafe and shopping district ruining the ambience.

The government, road building and timber extraction nexus robs residents of their homes, eradicates biodiversity habitats and pumps up emissions for all.

Wildlife, residents and tourists are now confronted with a dangerous network of roads where they risk their lives and endure permanent pollution.

To prioritise damaging industries and provide pathways only for them is putting the community at risk.

People want a sustainable environment, they would like to move about in safety without carbon emissions.

Where is the infrastructure for the future?

"Two-thirds of people want more transport funding to go into walking, cycling and public transport....

Bellingen - Roads to nowhere pt.2

"Two-thirds of people want more transport funding to go into walking, cycling and public transport.

Most of our transport funding goes into building wider and longer roads, embedding car dependency. However, making it easier to drive leads to more driving and ultimately more congestion, an effect known as induced demand.

For people to walk and cycle, we need to provide so-called healthy streets: not too noisy, easy to cross, with clean air and where people feel safe.

Default 30km/h speed limits in built-up areas are an immediate low-cost way to increase road safety.

By prioritising walking and cycling for short trips, Australia can reduce the national combined cost of $67 billion a year of traffic injuries and deaths, traffic congestion, air pollution and physical inactivity. "

A modern combustion engine vehicle emits harmful air pollutants out of the exhaust pipe.

Generally, we can't see the pollutants because they're a mixture of gases & microscopic carbon particles.

'Out of sight out of mind' is why many adults don't think to protect themselves or their children from #Traffic #pollution, by wearing an air pollution mask, for example.

Bumper to bumper traffic on I-280N near Sand Hill Road.

President Jokowi launched two new LRT lines yesterday in Jakarta in the midst of choking pollution and worsening traffic, after a four year delay. First impressions of the trains are not great (short door height, rough brakes, misaligned stops) but many are willing to give it a chance to escape traffic.

One segment of the railway was caught in controversy several weeks ago after a report said there’s a design error leading to the train having to significantly slow down to safely pass. The government claimed safety and feasibility concerns led to the implemented design.

If we're asking, "Do we have so many oversized trucks because consumers wanted oversized trucks — or because car companies wanted to sell them?"

I think we'd find it's mostly because companies wanted to sell oversized trucks. Advertising, product placement, pricing, promotions all shape consumer preferences.

Also, car companies can only offer cheap trucks by skirting regulations. This is why the oversized truck Mike drives in LA is regulated less than every other car driving to get coffee in the morning.
