PREZ-ELECT BUSH PICKS MINETA FOR TRANSPORTATION

President-elect George W. Bush has chosen Democrat

Norman Y. Mineta as his selection for Secretary of

Transportation. Mineta is a Californian and a 21-year

veteran of the U.S. Congress (retired in 1995). He is

currently a Senior Vice President, Transportation Systems

and Services, with Lockheed Martin in Washington D.C.

Mineta was also one of the primary authors of ISTEA, the

Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991.

About ISTEA, he said "I was proud to coauthor this law,

steering it away from the stagnation of recent decades, and

I can say with some objectivity that ISTEA remains the

single greatest call for transportation innovation and

flexibility in America since the 1950s."

 

Despite his role as an author of ISTEA, Mineta did not

overlook its shortcomings. In a paper entitled "Back to the

Future", he pointed out that "the results of ISTEA,

however, have been a mixed bag. Because ISTEA has never

received full funding in any fiscal year, much of our

surface transportation program remains focused on repair

work -- whether on highways, bridges, or transit systems.

New starts -- particularly in transit -- have been far

fewer than we would have liked to have seen by now."

 

According to Roy Kienitz of the Surface Transportation

Policy Project, "In Congress, Mineta helped restructure

transportation funding to give states and localities more

choices in spending federal money. Now this is bearing

fruit, with major upsurges in transit ridership and demand

for everything from new rail systems to more walkable

communities. Mineta is well-placed to help the Bush team

respond to Americans' increasing desire for transportation

choice."

 

One of the many outcomes of ISTEA was the creation of five

transportation research institutes throughout the United

States. And, in November of 1995, one of these institutes,

the International Institute for Surface Transportation

Policy Studies (IISTPS) at San Jose State University, was

re-named "The Norman Y. Mineta International Institute for

Surface Transportation Policy Studies" in honor of the

former Congressman. Mineta was also elected Honorary Chair

(Emeritus) of the IISTPS Board of Trustees at that time,

where he serves with Congressman Jim Oberstar of Minnesota.

 

In honor of former Congressman Mineta, this issue of

CenterLines lists several IISTPS reports and discusses one

bike/pedestrian research project in the works there. For a

SANTA BARBARA BIKE COALITION IS 10 YRS OLD

The Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition (SBBC) is entering

its second decade of service to that community. The first

meeting, convened by the county's rideshare and traffic

demand management coordinators, convened on January 9, 1991

focused on funding for improvement projects, and support

for a new traffic demand management ordinance.

 

Since 1991, SBBC has worked for the installation of bike

lanes, bike racks on buses, pioneered bicycle advocacy on

the World Wide Web, and a served as a model all-volunteer

advocacy organization. In 1998, the SBBC hosted more than

500 delegates to an extremely successful ProBike/ProWalk

Conference, providing invaluable assistance, information

and unparalleled hospitality.

 

Our congratulations to our friends at the SBBC on 10 years

of success -- with many more yet to come!

SEATTLE BIKING IS UP

Bicycle commuting is catching on in the Emerald City,

according to a Dec. 21st. article in the Seattle Times. "New

research by the city shows a 57 percent increase in bicycle

commuters since 1992. Volunteers staked out 29 locations

throughout Seattle this fall and counted more than 1,700

cyclists during the morning commute. A similar survey in

1992 counted about 1,100 cyclists.

 

"'An estimated 40 percent to 45 percent of Seattle

residents have a bike,' said Pete Lagerwey, who commutes

daily to his job as the city's bicycle program manager. 'We

feel there is a lot of latent demand.' City officials

suspect more people are biking to work because it's easier

for them to get around town. The city has doubled its

bikeway system since 1990, to about 59 miles of bike lanes

and paths.

 

"'I suppose other people are becoming more aware of the

same attractions it has for me. It's fun, and it gets you

to your destination pretty quick,' said Don Bullard, area

resident and 15-year bicycle commuter..."

CALIF. FREEWAY, EXPRESSWAY, TUNNEL, BRIDGE STUDY IN WORKS

According to a report in "The World In Motion" (Vol.5,

No.4), researchers at the Norman Y. Mineta International

Institute for Surface Transportation Policy Studies were

scheduled to begin a study this past fall entitled "A

Statewide Study for Bicyclists and Pedestrians on Freeways,

Expressways, Tunnels and Toll Bridges." Working under

contract for the California Department of Transportation

(CalTrans), the study team is led by Dr. Thomas C. Ferrara.

 

The team will work with a representative advisory committee

throughout the study. Data will be collected on accident

records, facility characteristics and intensity of use for

facilities with access and a control group without access.

The team will develop recommendations and policy guidelines

for Caltrans which account for impacts on all users and

affected agencies. According to Research Director Trixie

Johnson, "Given recent controversies on two San Francisco

Bay Bridge projects, this will be a high-profile study with

great potential for impact in California. The emphasis on

multimodal transportation which underlies TEA-21 promises

to make this a nationally significant study as well."

WASHINGTON SPENDS $5 MILLION FOR SCHOOL-AREA TRAFFIC SAFETY

The Washington State Department of Transportation

(WSDOT) has funded 51 projects, totaling more than $5

million for traffic safety improvements near public

schools. More than 130 applications, requesting nearly $12

million were submitted to WSDOTs Highways and Local

Programs Service Center for consideration.

 

The grants will be used by counties and local

municipalities for a range of projects, from walkway and

crossing improvements to traffic signals and school bus

turnouts. TSNS funding represents 20 - 70% of the total

project costs.

2001 EARTH CAR-FREE DAY SCHEDULED FOR APRIL 19TH

According to a Jan. 1st note from Eric Britton, Earth

Car Free Day is to be celebrated for the first time on

April 19th of this year. "Unlike anything that has ever

happened along these lines before, this is being organized

as a planetary festival of demonstrations and experiences,

almost all of which organized initially not by government

administrators but by local groups, individuals and

families. We call this a 'trickle-up' approach to

sustainable lives and a sustainable planet.

 

"The goal of Earth Car Free Day 2001 is first to empty as

many streets of traffic in as many cities around the world

as we can, and then fill them with people going about the

business of their daily lives in safer, quieter, more

efficient and more convivial ways. The goal is to make the

streets come alive with human activity, and the entire

effort behind it is being carried out without one drop of

taxpayer money behind it."

LONDON SHOPPING STREET TO GET PED FAST LANE???

According to a Dec. 31st Tony Wilson commentary in

Australia's The Age, "...The highlight came when a woman

pushing twins and Myer bags split through a gang of teenage

dawdlers, dashed in front of a slow-moving tram, and was in

Just Jeans buying a shirt before the tram reached the next

stop. It was graceful, it was stylish, and it demonstrated

why for many years now Australia has been regarded as home

to some world-class shoppers.

 

"There is a business lobby group in London, however, that

would say that, although the woman made the best of a

difficult situation, she should never have had to put up

with the dawdlers. The group, representing Oxford Street

traders, is arguing that too many of the 9.6 million people

who visit the famous shopping strip each year are dawdling,

thereby spoiling it for everyone else.

 

"The solution, the groups says, is to introduce a

pedestrian fast lane with an enforceable minimum walking

speed of five kilometres an hour. Fast lanes, to date, have

been used with some success in public swimming pools, but

this would be the first case of a regulated footpath. Under

the group's proposal, pedestrians would have their speed

checked by radar, and if it dropped below 5kmh they would

be fined $26..."

TEMPE'S PEDICABS MOVE HUNDREDS OF YEAR-END REVELERS

According to a Dec. 28th Arizona Republic story, "When

the crowds descend on downtown Tempe this weekend, Billy

Oxford will be among a few dozen bicyclists shuttling

visitors around in exchange for tips. With an estimated

150,000 people expected to converge here for Tempe's

year-end festivities, Oxford's 6-year-old Arizona Pedicab

Co. will likely move hundreds of people using pedal power.

 

The 43-year-old ex-Marine and former computer programmer

also sees pedicabs as the embodiment of his philosophy

favoring low-impact transit. 'A car or bus does more damage

to the environment in 10 minutes than one of these will in

10 years,' he said..."

BELLEVUE'S FLASHING EYES WARN PEDESTRIANS

According to a Dec. 26th article in the Seattle Times,

"If the flashing eyes darting left and right don't remind

you of Mom, the message should: Look both ways before you

cross the street.

 

"The animated device at one of Bellevue's busiest downtown

intersections is the nation's newest experiment in

pedestrian safety. Installed earlier this month at

Northeast Eighth Street and 102nd Avenue Northeast near

Bellevue Square, the signal is already having results, said

Karen Gonzales, neighborhood traffic-safety manager.

 

"'We're still collecting data, but pedestrians are clearly

looking both ways,' she said. 'It's been interesting to

watch the dynamics as pedestrians change their behavior.'

The animated signal was developed by a Canadian psychology

professor, and experiments using it here and in Florida are

being closely watched by the Federal Highway

Administration. Tests so far have been promising...."

HAWAII GETS MANDATORY HELMET LAW

According to a Dec. 27th story in the Honolulu

Star-Bulletin, "The holiday rush may not be over for

parents who gave their children bicycles for Christmas. A

new statewide law that kicks in on Jan. 1 requires bicycle

riders under the age of 16 to wear bicycle helmets. The

parents or legal guardians of those caught without the

protective headgear face fines of $25, which is about the

average cost of a new helmet.

 

"The helmet law is among a handful of state laws that go

into effect this new year, but is one that many people will

notice. Bicycle helmets reduce the risk of head injuries by

up to 85 percent, and universal helmet use could prevent an

average of 500 bicycle-related deaths each year, according

to the National Bicycle Safety Network....."

CALIFORNIA BEEFS UP PED SAFETY LAWS

According to a Dec. 29th story on the Auto Channel about

new California traffic laws , "...Responding to concerns

about the impact of traffic speeds on all road users, AB

2767, supported by the Auto Club, provides that a traffic

and engineering survey conducted for setting speed limits

may take into consideration residential density and

pedestrian and bicycle safety.

 

"AB 2522 prohibits a driver from unnecessarily blocking a

marked or unmarked crosswalk. It also imposes a mandatory

fine for overtaking and passing a vehicle that has stopped

to let a pedestrian cross. The fine is $270 for the first

offense and $540 for a second offense. The fine for other

violations resulting in an injury of a pedestrian has been

increased to $594 for a first offense and $864 for a second

offense. The bill also provides a grant program for local

governments to help finance pedestrian and bicycle safety

projects..."

through the heart of Ridgewood and Ho-Ho-Kus.

 

"Loving pedals along a route once traveled by the trolleys

NEW ST. PETE TRAIL SET TO OPEN IN FEBRUARY

According to a Dec. 27th story in the St. Petersburg

(FL) Times, "The irony of the Suncoast Parkway's name, as

has been pointed out frequently, is that it is likely to

destroy almost everything parklike in its path. Green space

will be devoured; roads will become more crowded; the air,

more polluted -- all of which is especially bad for bike

riders.

 

"But what is otherwise a disaster for cyclists does come

with some compensation. The Turnpike District of the

Florida Department of Transportation set aside $8-million

of the total $507-million cost of the parkway to build a

bike trail that runs parallel to the toll road. The

district gave me permission to preview the trail Wednesday,

though it is closed to the public until the parkway opens

Feb. 4..."

SALT LAKE CITY GETS PED CROSSING FLAGS

According to a Dec. 26th story in the Philadelphia

Inquirer, "The athletic young man, wearing the sky-blue ski

jacket of the Olympics Organizing Committee, lofted a flag

proudly over his head and literally stopped traffic. And

that is precisely the point of Salt Lake City's attempt to

make walking downtown's long blocks and crossing its

super-wide streets a slightly less daunting prospect.

 

"After seeing a pedestrian struck by a car while attempting

a street crossing earlier this year, Mayor Rocky Anderson

ordered that bouquets of Day-Glo orange flags - like those

used by highway crews - be placed in baskets at 32 midblock

crosswalks throughout the center of town. So now anyone

crossing an outsized street can take a flag when entering

the crosswalk, march through the suddenly docile tide of

traffic - six lanes wide in most places - and deposit the

flag in another basket once the far shore is safely

attained..."
