ALLIANCE FOR A NEW TRANSPORTATION CHARTER
The Surface Transportation Policy Project (STPP) has begun a new
alliance devoted to making transportation more sustainable, just, and
environmentally-wise as we lead up to TEA-21 reauthorization time. The
group's charter says, in part, "WE CALL NOW for the development and
implementation of local, state, and national transportation policies
that provide real changes in transportation planning and investments
that fully embrace the following principles:
--Enhanced Public Health, Safety, and Security...
--Promotion of Social Equity and Livable Communities...
--Sustained Economic Prosperity...
--Improved Energy Use and Environmental Protection..."

APBP NEWS FROM TUCSON
According to Andy Clarke, Executive Director of the Association of
Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals (APBP), "There are a couple of
things it might be nice to mention about [APBP's recent Professional
Development Seminar in Tucson, Arizona.]
"1. Peter Lagerwey was the recipient of the 2nd Annual APBP Lifetime
Achievement Award for his tremendous leadership in Seattle and the
assistance and inspiration he has given to countless other bicycle and
pedestrian professionals through training, workshops, and other
"2. Seventy people enjoyed two days of highly interactive sessions and
field trips; the format allowed a lot of time for discussion and debate
and ample opportunity for networking. A very different experience from
the more traditional conference format, and one that suits a smaller
group much better. At least three communities have already expressed
interest in hosting the event in 2003.
"3. Two new board members were elected - Linda Crider and Suzan Pinsof.
Bill Barber and Jennifer Toole were returned to the board.
"4. There are a variety of resources that we're going to try to
marshall and post on the APBP website, but we don't have everything
yet. As soon as we do, I'll try and remember to let you know!
"There were a number of good outcomes from the specific workshops -
recommendations for needed research on trail/roadway intersection
design; a revised platform for APBP's TEA-21 reauthorization campaign

DON CHEN CONNECTS HEALTH, SMART GROWTH
According to a note from Deb Spicer of the New York State Dept. of
Health, the NYS Association of County Health Officials (and partners)
sponsors a monthly videoconference on topics of interest to public
health professionals. This month's videoconference will be on the
connections between smart growth and public health. The speaker is Don
Chen, the director of Smart Growth America and formerly with STPP. Don
spoke in August at the first national CDC Prevention Conference on
Heart Disease and was very well received by the health audience. The
teleconference will be on December 20, 2001, 9:00--10:00 AM (EST).
"Here's a blurb from NYSACHO's web site: 'The Smart Growth movement is
an effort to address the impact of development on quality of life.
Rather than continuing with existing trends that promote suburban
sprawl and move people away from community centers, Smart Growth seeks
to restore community, preserve open space and foster economic
development. The Smart Growth movement, with its emphasis on creating
community environments that allow for and even promote physical
activity as part of our daily lives, is particularly important to
public health. This program will focus on the implications of this new
development trend for public health activities that address both
environmental and chronic disease concerns."
For a list of site coordinators who may be downlinking the
videoconference, go to:
If you are interested in attending, you will need to contact the site
coordinator to make sure they are downlinking it and to make sure there
is space. "Healthy Heart" folks are encouraged to invite their local
planning and transportation people - it's a great opportunity for some
discussions on how to work together.

RTOR DEAD IN STATEN ISLAND
According to another story in TSTC's Mobilizing the Region, "On
November 21, Governor George Pataki gave New York pedestrians and
cyclists reason to gives thanks when he vetoed the right-turn-on-red
proposal for Staten Island. Island legislators claimed that
right-turners at red lights were clogging arteries. They seemed to
ignore the fact that nearly one-third of all signalized intersections
on the Island allow the turning movement and that the others were
deemed unsafe to allow turns.
"The Governor in his veto stated 'While reducing traffic congestion is
an important public purpose, protecting the safety of pedestrians and
bicyclists must be our paramount concern.' Mayor Giuliani, Staten
Island Borough President Molinari, Borough President-Elect James
Molinaro and Transportation Alternatives concurred that an
across-the-board right on red rule would be a safety hazard."

HPVS BREAK 80MPH BARRIER
According to a story on the WISIL HPVers** website, "'The 2001 World
Human Powered Speed Challenge,' formerly known as the 'Worlds Fastest
Bicycle Competition,' has for the second year in a row pit man,
technology, and sheer determination against the unrelenting forces of
air resistance and friction to determine the absolute boundaries of man
powered speed for a 200 meter distance. Against a lineup of the fastest
bikes and riders in the world, Sam Whittingham has broken the record
for the second year in a row by going 80.55 MPH. That's almost 8 MPH
faster than last years record!
"The World Human Powered Speed Challenge is not only an opportunity to
set a world record for speed, it also represents the World's Fastest
Human propelled by his own power in the most efficient vehicles ever
designed. The marriage of maximum athletic power and high level
aerodynamic and engineering result in shockingly fast speeds..."

MINI--E.R. ON TWO WHEELS
According to a Nov. 29th story in the South County Journal in King
County, Washington, "A dozen King County Medic One paramedics have
completed training on 24-speed bicycles to become 'bike medics.' They
will use the bicycles when they're assigned to provide standby coverage
at parades, athletic events, the King County Fair and other events
where there are large crowds. Each bicycle carries a 25-pound pack of
emergency medical supplies. The pack includes a 5-pound portable
defibrillator, the device used to shock someone having cardiac arrest,
to restart the heart.
"Four paramedics, including program coordinator Lisa Parsons of
Enumclaw, will pedal in public for the first time Saturday at the
annual Enumclaw Christmas Parade. 'We've completed our training, which
included learning some fast braking and turning techniques,' said
Parsons, who has been a paramedic for 10 years..."

QUEENS BLVD TO GET PED MAKEOVER
According to a Dec. 5th story in the New York Daily News, "Efforts
to make Queens Blvd. safer for pedestrians are getting an infusion of
federal funds. The Transportation Appropriations Bill for fiscal year
2002 that the House of Representatives passed last week and the Senate
adopted yesterday earmarks $500,000 for improvements ? such as wider
medians, new traffic signal patterns, more streetlights and additional
pedestrian barriers to prevent jaywalking, Reps. Nita Lowey (D-Queens,
Bronx, Westchester), Joseph Crowley (D-Queens, Bronx) and Anthony
Weiner (D-Brooklyn, Queens) said...
"Officials said Queens Blvd. has become safer because of improvements,
including increased crossing time for pedestrians at some
intersections, under city Transportation Commissioner Iris Weinshall.
Lowey said that the funding will help the city in continuing the
progress on safety. Six pedestrians were mowed down last year, compared
with three so far this year. From 1993 through 2000, between four and
18 pedestrians were killed annually. Through Oct. 31, the number of
pedestrians struck dropped 21% compared with the same period last year."

$5 MILLION PED BRIDGE OPENS IN UTAH
According to a Dec. 5th AP story, "The University of Utah opened a
300-foot pedestrian bridge Wednesday that will be used by athletes
walking from the Olympic Village to the stadium for ceremonies. The $5
million suspension bridge spans six-lane Wasatch Drive, which divides
the university campus. It will be open for students and the public
except on days of Olympic ceremonies when it will be reserved for
Olympic athletes. The 20-foot-wide bridge hangs from cables and a
single pylon and can hold thousands of people at once. Sculptor
Jonathan Bronson was commissioned by university donors Robert Rice and
Kenneth Melby to make a bronze statue of a skier on the west end of the
The George S. and Delores Dore Eccles Foundation contributed $2 million
for the bridge. Other donors and the university came up with the rest
of the money. The Eccles foundation is donating $8 million for Olympic
ceremonies and a 130-foot Olympic cauldron. That gift made the Eccles
banking family of Utah the biggest benefactor of the Salt Lake Olympics.

NEW EU RULES FOR SAFER CARS
According to a Nov. 27th Reuters story, "European Union governments
accepted Monday a voluntary commitment by automakers to improve the
design of their vehicles so fewer pedestrians die when they are hit by
cars. Under the deal, the industry will start implementing in 2002 new
safety measures ranging from the introduction of anti-locking ABS
breaks in all cars to the abolition of cow bars on the front of
vehicles. The agreement also aims at making the auto industry redesign
car fronts in order to try and reduce the number of casualties in car
"'The EU states have decided to favour a voluntary system under the
agreement that all the necessary requirements are met by the industry,'
Per Haugaard, a spokesman for the European Commission, told Reuters.
'With the voluntary approach we'll start saving lives quicker.' Each
year 9,000 pedestrian and cyclists are killed in Europe and a further
200,000 injured in accidents involving cars, the European Commission
said in a background note."

PHOENIX PEDESTRIANS REPLACE PARKING LOTS
According to columnist Howard Seftel, writing in the Nov. 28th
edition of the Arizona Republic, "Three-month-old Portland's is the
kind of place I'm genetically wired to love. It's set on downtown
Phoenix's fringe, in an area that's starting to show signs of urban
life. Condos, clubs and cafes are replacing empty lots and dead
storefronts. Diners here may rub their eyes in disbelief when they gaze
out Portland's windows: Instead of a parking lot view, they can look at
a parade of passing pedestrians - folks walking their dogs, or out for
a stroll - just like in a real city.
"The place has a comfy neighborhood feel. Diana Krall and B.B. King
seem like the right voices to softly spill through the speakers. An
energetic buzz comes from the bar. The dining room's polished wood
tables, hefty cutlery and Art Deco-like blue sconces add to the
casually classy tone, as does the un-clich'd wine list. And the staff
makes customers feel at home, too..."

BAD AIR DAMAGES HEALTHY KIDS' LUNGS
According to an AP story, "Some children who appear in perfect
health have measurable lung damage from exposure to air pollution,
researchers found, suggesting such damage could lead to lung disease.
Past research has found that children living in polluted areas have
higher rates of lung diseases such as asthma. But a new study is the
first to use X-ray imaging to measure changes in children with no
symptoms of lung problems, the researchers said..."

OZ DRIVERS REMINDED OF LOWER SPEED LIMITS
According to a Nov. 30th story on the Australian Broadcasting
Corporation, "Motorists in the goldfields and Esperance regions are
being reminded that new lower speed limits for local roads begin
tomorrow. Speed limits along built-up residential roads will drop from
60 kilometres to 50 kilometres an hour. Goldfields' Roadwise officer
Chris Parry says many of the roads affected by the change will not be
sign-posted so people need to take care. He says the lower speed limits
will save lives.
"'A lot of people get caught up in the argument that speed is an issue
for the major roads and the highways and speeds in excess of 110
kilometres an hour,' he said. 'We do know that most people that are
killed on our streets, most pedestrians, and that includes our
community's children, are being killed on residential streets [by
vehicles] traveling in excess of 60 kilometres an hour.'"

JETSONIAN TRAVEL ONE STEP CLOSER
According to a December 3rd story in the New York Times, "It is not
a hovercraft, a helicopter backpack or a teleportation pod. The mystery
transportation device being developed by the award-winning inventor
Dean Kamen -- the subject of continuous fevered speculation since
provocative clues and predictions surfaced in media reports last
January -- is not hydrogen-powered, a favored theory in Internet
discussions. Nor does it run on a super efficient Stirling engine (yet).
"But if the public's collective yearning for Jetsonian travel
technology must remain unrequited this week, at least the speculators
will have their curiosity satisfied. Mr. Kamen plans to demonstrate
today a two-wheeled battery-powered device designed for a single
standing rider. Its chief novelty lies in the uncanny effect, produced
by a finely tuned gyroscopic balancing mechanism, of intuiting where
its rider wants to go -- and going there.
"The device, the Segway Human Transporter, better known by its former
code- name, Ginger, can go up to 12 miles an hour and has no brakes.
Its speed and direction are controlled solely by the rider's shifting
weight and a manual turning mechanism on one of the handlebars..."

WILL ATLANTA BE A "SEGWAY CITY"??
According to a Dec. 4th story on ABC News, "As inventor Dean Kamen
envisions it, people in the next decade could be zipping around
neighborhood sidewalks, running errands and commuting to work on
motorized scooter-like devices. Kamen's newly unveiled Segway Human
Transporter is easy to operate, cheaper than a car, doesn't pollute and
can run all day on a rechargeable set of batteries. But are cities
ready to accommodate another mode of transportation? Urban planners say
it's a neat idea, but one that would take a lot of work.
"'You already have a lot of competition for speed space,' said Robert
Olmsted, a longtime veteran planner for the Metropolitan Transportation
Authority in New York City. 'There are bicycles, cars, taxis, emergency
vehicles and a lot of pedestrians. I'm not sure how easily these things
could fit in.' Some cities could absorb the devices more easily than
others, say planners. A metropolis like New York City, for example,
might be hard-pressed to make room for the slick new scooters, whereas
the smaller, more modern city of Atlanta is already drawing up plans to
accommodate Segway-riding citizens..."
