Keeping your city streets safe
In today’s fast-paced world, our streets are becoming increasingly dangerous. From distracted driving to the rise in delivery drivers and the growing popularity of electric bikes and scooters, it’s crucial to address the risks that come with safely navigating our roads by car or by foot. What’s the best way to protect your streets and ensure the safety of everyone in your city?
Understanding the Dangers
Today’s streets are entirely different than the roads of yesteryear. Multiple factors contribute to the new level of danger as well as the increase in crashes and fatalities. Larger, heavier vehicles on roadways and distracted driving are major culprits. Furthermore, poor street designs prioritize cars, neglecting pedestrians and cyclists, leading to additional pedestrian fatalities.
The proliferation of electric bikes and scooters has also added a new dimension to road safety concerns. E-bikes and scooters often share the same space as pedestrians and cars and are unregulated and don’t always adhere to safety laws.
Planning Ahead and Using Data
Cities need to cultivate and use data to identify problems and dangers in order to protect local streets effectively. City planners can gain valuable insights by analyzing traffic patterns, accident hotspots, and pedestrian flow. This data can help inform their decision-making process.
This data-driven approach allows for targeted interventions and the implementation of measures to mitigate risks.
