Urbification: Taking the sub out of Calif. suburbs

Walking. Bicycling. Alternatives to Driving Everywhere. Social justice. Alternatives to suburban boredom and waste. And the infrastructure and technology needed to get there.

It's been a year since Susie Stephens was killed by a bus driver in St. Louis. I saw Susie speak in 1998 at the ProBike/ProWalk conference. What an inspirational speaker she was. I am now so thoroughly outraged to hear that the driver who killed her was only charged with "failure to yield to a pedestrian"? This is a misdemeanor that carries a maximum penalty of $500. Now, the National Center for Bicycling and Walking is resolved to find a way to hold drivers more accountable.
