ALERT! CDC SEEKS INPUT ON INJURY RESEARCH AGENDA

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) National Center for Injury

Prevention and Control (NCIPC) is asking for comments on its injury

research agenda, with input to be received by August 20. The NCIPC sets

out its research agenda in eight topical chapters in three prioritized

tiers. Comments submitted by August 20 will be considered for the next

iteration of the agenda, to be presented in early December.

 

The document makes some mention of issues related to bicycling, walking

and physical activity promotion (listed here by chapter):

 

TRANSPORTATION AND MOBILITY

"F. Evaluate the effectiveness of behavioral and environmental

strategies to prevent pedestrian injury." (Tier Two)

 

"K. Evaluate programs and policies to increase the use of bicycle and

motorcycle helmets." (Tier Three)

 

"L. Adapt and evaluate proven effective prevention strategies to rural

areas (e.g., for alcohol, pedestrian, speeding, traffic calming)." (Tier

Three)

 

RESIDENTIAL AND COMMUNITY SAFETY

"L. Evaluate community efforts that aim to increase physical activity

while preserving safety." (listed below Preventing Dog Bites, but above

Unintentional Firearm Injury) (Tier Three)

 

SPORTS, RECREATION, AND EXERCISE

"T. Evaluate the effectiveness of components of safe bicycling"

WORLD BANK'S TRANSPORT STRATEGY REVIEW

According to the Institute for Transportation and Development

Policy's website, "The World Bank has completed the latest version of

their Urban Transport Sector Strategy Review, and the July draft

contains the important Chapter 12 which spells out how the new policy

will influence World Bank activity. It's important that we review and

comment on this Chapter in particular as soon as possible.

 

The current draft is great on promoting Non-Motorized Transport and

integrating it into all road loans. Its weakest in that it doesn't

really mention lending for Bus Rapid Transit, and there is no explicit

commitment to traffic demand management and incorporating induced

traffic into their economic and environmental evaluation."

APBP'S 2ND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SEMINAR SERIES

According to the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle

Professionals' website, APBP's 2nd Professional Development Seminar

Series, scheduled for November 14-16 in Tucson, Arizona will bring

together "leaders of the bicycle and pedestrian transportation

profession for two days of networking, in-depth technical seminars, and

study tours. Critical subjects to be covered include designing sidewalks

and trails for universal access, intersection design, context sensitive

design, and bicycle and pedestrian issues for TEA-21 reauthorization. A

special ?Inside the Manuals? session features speakers who are

responsible for the Highway Capacity Manual, AASHTO Green Book, and

Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices.

 

"A series of half-day bike rides and walks will take participants on an

exploration of the innovative and exemplary ways in which Tucson is

accommodating bicyclists and pedestrians. There might also be some

locations that need improvement! Take your pick from tours focused on

pedestrian design, integrating transit with nonmotorized travel, trail

and bicycle facility design etc."

UC DAVIS LAUNCHES BIKE/PED COURSE

According to a recent news release from the University of

California, Davis, "'Bicycle and Pedestrian Planning and Design'

provides an introduction to the critical elements of planning and design

for bicycle circulation and pedestrian design. It moves from the broad

legal and policy framework to community-wide planning and policy needs

and, finally, to the scale of detailed design for neighborhoods and

projects. The first day consists of classroom lectures, discussions and

case studies. The second day is an optional half-day guided bike tour

throughout the city of Davis and the University of California, Davis

campus. The city and campus communities have developed one of the most

extensive, well-connected and safe bicycle networks in the country.

 

Michelle DeRobertis, principal transportation engineer with Wilbur Smith

Associates in San Francisco, teaches the course which takes place

Thursday and Friday, Sept. 20 and 21, 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. and 9 a.m.-1

p.m., respectively. The course will take place at 1632 Da Vinci Ct.,

Davis, and the fee is $300 for both the lecture and bike tour or $250

for the lecture only. A $50 discount is available for CCAPA and AEP

members.

ARLINGTON VA TRIES SPEED HUMP TEMPS

According to Rich Viola of the City of Arlington, "Arlington,

Virginia, just purchased two temporary speed humps from Recycled

Technology Inc., an Oregon firm. The humps are made from sections of

recycled rubber material and are assembled and anchored at the

installation site. We had ours installed in early July and so far are

pleased with them." For specifications , prices, etc:

A COOL MO TO DE TRIP FOR DENNIS SCOTT

We recently got a note from Dennis Scott, formerly Missouri's

bike/ped coordinator saying that "After eight years as the Bicycle and

Pedestrian Program Coordinator for the Missouri Department of

Transportation, Dennis Scott has moved on to the east coast to serve as

the Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator for the Delaware Department of

Transportation. Prior to his work in Missouri, Dennis held similar

positions at the regional level in Tampa and Sarasota, Florida for a

total of nine years." Good luck to Dennis in his new position and if any

IRISH COMMUTE CAN BE ROUGH

In an August 13th Irish Times editorial, Mary Mulvihil said "There I

am, communing with the tarmac outside the Ormond Hotel on Dublin's north

quays, surrounded by a host of angels holding mobile phones, while a

couple of local 10-year-olds give me the benefit of their considerable

medical expertise. You're maybe wondering what I'm on, or what I've

taken? Well, what I'm not on, is my bike, what I've taken is a tumble.

And unfortunately, I led with my right eyebrow, not my most intelligent

move ever.

 

"It's just the latest incident in my long, and fortunately

undistinguished career, as an urban cyclist, but it has left me with

five neat stitches, a prizefighter's eye, smashed spectacles, multiple

bruising, and a severe shock to the nervous system. On the plus side,

though, it has greatly restored my faith in humankind (more about that

anon)..."

CALGARY PEDS GET A FEW LIFTS

In an August 10th op-ed piece, Calgary Herald writer Allan Connery

described some of Calgary's new pedestrian features: "With new LRT

stations opening soon, it's good to see pedestrian overpasses being

provided to link the two stations to the east side of Macleod Trail. The

Canyon Meadows walkway is nearly complete and work has started on an

overpass from the Fish Creek/Lacombe station. Major users of this one

will include students at St. Mary's College.

 

"And way down south, near Highway 22X, there'll be a pedestrian overpass

in place even before the LRT extension opens in 2003. When Ald. Linda

Fox-Mellway learned the old overpass from Anderson Station to

Southcentre was being replaced, she put the grab on the precast pieces

and arranged for them to be installed again. The walkway will provide a

path across Macleod from the Shawnessy LRT station to places like

Fluor-Daniel's new offices and a future public high school."

A WALK ON DC'S WILD SIDE

In the fourth part of a five part series, Washington Post staff

writer Benjamin Forgey had this to say: "I must say that I am impressed

with all the building activity downtown. Not the architecture,

necessarily, but the activity. Walking downtown, however, is not an

impressive experience. A simple message, 'Sidewalk Closed, Use Other

Walk,' has become required reading for all citizens and visitors in the

commercial core of the nation's capital.

 

"Oh, sure, the phenomenon is easy enough to explain. Construction is all

over the place, and so are the signs. And isn't it nice that the author

thought to put that helpful-hint arrow in, directing you to cross the

street to the 'Other Walk'? On second thought, you might wonder, as you

take your umpteenth detour, why you are being forced to use the 'Other

Walk.' After all, if there is this 'Other Walk,' there must be 'The

Walk.' Why can't we all use 'The Walk'?..."

NEW BIKE LANES/PATH COMING TO OAHU

According to an article in the August 12th Honolulu Star-Bulletin,

"What a difference a bike lane will make: Soon Liz Ryan won't have to

bike three blocks out of her way to avoid exiting freeway traffic to get

from Kaimuki to Kahala. The special events coordinator for the Hawaii

Bicycling League looks forward to work on the Kaimuki bike lane as well

as another short section near Kealaolu Avenue farther east.

 

"That work is scheduled to begin Sept. 4, said Dean Harvest, information

specialist with the state Department of Transportation. Vince Llorin,

the Department of Transportation's bicycle and pedestrian coordinator,

said the two projects are a small part of the Honolulu Bicycle Master

Plan's ''Bike-Friendly Route No. 1.' It would connect the Kalanianaole

bike lane from Hawaii Kai to Aiea through the downtown area.

 

"In Kaimuki, the lane will be installed along Waialae Avenue from 17th

Avenue to 21st Avenue. In Kahala, the lane will extend the existing path

on Kealaolu to help cyclists merge onto Kalanianaole Highway. The two

projects will cost a total of $1,645,145 for design and construction..."

BIKING THE ALASKA COASTAL TRAIL

According to an article in the August 12th Seattle Times, "'Most

people encounter moose past the airport,' my photocopied sheet of

cycling directions tersely stated. Too bad I had time to ride only

halfway out the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, but maybe it was just as

well. Even on this perfect summer Saturday, I was alone on stretches of

the waterfront path, and armed only with 21 speeds on a rented bicycle.

 

"'A cow moose can be very dangerous while protecting her calf from a

perceived threat,' another brochure told me. OK, so I stopped short of

the airport. Still, I got a wonderful first taste of wild Alaska only

minutes from downtown Anchorage ? a relaxing way to spend an unplanned

afternoon in town before I set out the next day for Denali National

Park..."

NEW JERSEY PATH PROJECT WORRIES NEIGHBORS

According to an August 14th story in the Passaic County Record, "The

plan was to create a nature trail along the old Morris Canal where

township residents would be able to stroll or bike while learning about

the waterway's history. But the second phase of the project, which

called for the clearing of trees in the Great Notch section to make room

for park benches and light posts, has infuriated residents of this

wooded neighborhood.

 

"'I knew that there was going to be a pathway through there, but

honestly I was led to believe that it was going to be a natural dirt

pathway,' said April Patrick, a Morningside Circle resident whose

backyard patio faces the walkway. 'I really had no idea that there was

going to be lights and a 12-foot-wide paved situation.'..."

ONE V-E-R-Y L-O-N-G BIKE/PED BRIDGE

"John --- Thank you for contacting the State Cycle Unit in

Queensland Transport and for exploring our web site. The bridge in the

picture you refer to is the Hornibrook Highway linking Brighton and

Redcliffe, north of Brisbane, Qld. The bridge was once used by vehicles

but was closed when a new bridge for vehicles was built alongside it.

(If you look to the left in the picture you will see the new bridge.)

The bridge has been reopened for cyclists and pedestrians and is used

regularly for recreation and commuting. Many people cycle out onto the

bridge to fish. I hope this answers your questions. If you would like

any more information please contact me again." --Jennifer Collin, State

Cycle Unit, Queensland Transport.

accidents are caused by errors in distribution of attention, ranging

from in-car discussion groups via using the car-phone to just missing

relevant stimuli from the environment. That gives us the first

hint: preferably, don't distract the driver from his main task, and, if

possible, avoid peak mental loads. (Roundabouts are a nice example: the

mental load of a busy conventional junction is "spread out" over a

series of easy T-junctions.)..." Can be downloaded at:
