2017 US REPORT CARD ON WALKING & WALKABLE COMMUNITIES
-> The USC Prevention Research Center Notes reports the National Physical Activity Plan Alliance released the first comprehensive assessment of walking and walkability in the US. Using information from several national datasets such as the American Community Survey, the National Health Interview Survey, and the National Household Travel Survey. (The 2017 United States Report Card on Walking and Walkable Communities: http://bit.ly/2ynHv2a) The report outlines the extent to which individuals and communities in the US meet standards for walking. These walkability standards include individual and community level factors such as walking behaviors, pedestrian infrastructure, safety, community walking programs, and pedestrian policies. Grades for each of the factors assessed were low. However, experts highlight that this report establishes a baseline for future comparisons as communities nationwide make improvements in policy and infrastructure to support walking and walkability. http://bit.ly/2BHMGvW

ECONOMIC BENEFITS: PLACEMAKING, PRO PED & BIKE & REDUCED VMT
-> The National Center for Sustainable Transportation at the University of CA at Davis released a report that analyzes evidence of how placemaking policies that prioritize pedestrian and non-motorized access and that, at times, reduce vehicle miles traveled (VMT) contribute to local economies. This report builds upon previous research that analyzed placemaking and VMT at large geographic scales. It summarizes evidence on how more locally oriented placemaking efforts are associated with benefits for residents and firms. There is a high degree of economic benefit evidence from neighborhood-oriented placemaking transportation policies that affects commercial property values, residential property values, business sentiment, and productivity from density. Researchers suggest a systems view of metropolitan transportation that has a hierarchy of networks, from high-throughput metropolitan arteries to local, multi-modal, and neighborhood planning with connections between different levels of the system. "The Economic Benefits of Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT)- Reducing Placemaking: Synthesizing a New View" http://bit.ly/2B7ZebL

MORE MULTIMODAL TRANSPORTATION, LESS INCOME EQUITY
-> State Smart Transportation Initiative reports a recent study published in Local Environment, the International Journal of Justice and Sustainability found that cities offering diverse transportation options have the lowest income inequality. (Commute Mode Diversity and Income Inequality: An Inter-Urban Analysis of 148 Midsize US Cites: http://bit.ly/2zh2FLz) Another study found that transit systems might begin to struggle as lower income families are pushed away from the city center. (In Portland, OR, Economic Displacement May Be A Driver of Transit Ridership Loss: http://bit.ly/2l5VoZA) These works demonstrate that preserving access to multimodal options for disadvantaged populations is essential for cities' economies, the viability of their transportation systems, and the wellbeing of families. http://bit.ly/2ykwfiC

FOLLOWING THRU ON VISION ZERO PROMISES
-> Streetsblog USA reports nearly 3 dozen American cities have adopted Vision Zero goals. Declaring a commitment to safer streets is the easy part. Following through with meaningful policies from city agencies to rapidly reduce traffic injuries and deaths is another matter. A chart tracks annual traffic fatalities in 6 Vision Zero cities, indexed to 2010. In most cases, it's a little too soon to pass judgment. Even in cities that committed to Vision Zero a few years ago, progress is hard to discern. Only New York and Boston are even heading in the right direction, and not very fast. http://bit.ly/2znGW4B

[See Resources section for a new Vision Zero report, Vision, Strategies, Action: Guidelines for an Effective Vision Zero Action Plan.]

LA PAZ, BOLIVIA ZEBRA-COSTUMED YOUTH PROTECT PEDESTRIANS
-> An article in citiscope reports that 265 young people dressed up in zebra costumes in La Paz, Bolivia disperse into the chaotic, traffic-clogged streets to protect pedestrians, keep order on the sidewalks and offer passersby some occasional advice. The zebra program is a city-funded initiative that trains youth from broken homes or financially troubled backgrounds to become public ambassadors for everything from good driving to good dietary habits. The costumes are a play on the phrase "zebra crossings" - the striped crosswalks where pedestrians here often must dodge cars and motorbikes to cross the street. http://bit.ly/2znbZx8

STICKER WARNS MOTORIST NOT TO OPEN DOOR WHEN CYCLIST PRESENT
-> Springwise reports tech company Semcon has invented the Life Sticker, which attaches to a car's side view mirror and warns drivers with a flashing light not to open the door if a cyclist is approaching. The device, which is patent-pending, can be produced for just 2 EURO per unit. Semcon are currently looking for manufacturing partners and claim that the device could be brought to the market within a year. The Life Sticker works by connecting the car's door warning device with the cyclists' phones through Bluetooth. "The technology powers itself thanks to the solar cells, and no connection to the in-car system is required. All the user has to do is stick it on. http://bit.ly/2BHDhEF

MESMERIZING TRAFFIC FLOW SIMULATIONS
-> Jalopnik provides computer simulations of traffic flow through different styles of intersections, ranging from the least to the most coordinated, each of them rated for how much traffic the intersection can easily allow to flow through it. Think of traffic like a fluid here, streams of traffic moving like streams of water. What makes this video so great is that it ignores all concerns outside of flow rate. http://bit.ly/2BGObKH


REGIONAL AND LOCAL ACTIONS

NEW YORK, NY ADDS 25 MI OF PROTECTED BIKE LANES IN 2017
-> Metro reports with a 25-mile expansion in protected bike lanes, New York City DOT broke last year's record of 18 miles. The bike network runs throughout the city for nearly 1,200 miles. Two-thirds of the new mileage was in the outer boroughs. http://bit.ly/2BHZhPQ

KY APPROVES $85K IN BIKE & PED GRANTS
-> The KY Transportation Cabinet approved $85,780 in 13 grants to improve bicycle and pedestrian initiatives. The grants are funded solely through the sale of Kentucky's "Share the Road" specialty license plates. Since its inception in 2009, the program has provided more than $675,000 toward bicycle and pedestrian-related initiatives. http://bit.ly/2BJtpu8

PORTLAND, OR: BRAND NEW, ALREADY OUTDATED BIKE LANES
-> Bike Portland reports new bike lanes make for an important link in Portland, OR's bike infrastructure, but building unprotected bike lanes on a high-speed street carries risk. North Willamette Boulevard is a 30-mile-per-hour road with little infrastructure designed to slow drivers. NACTO's "Designing for All Ages & Abilities: Contextual Guidance for High-Comfort Bicycle Facilities," says a two-lane, two-way street with a 30 mph speed limit and about 6,000 cars per day like Willamette should have more than just paint (and hope) between riders and drivers. http://bit.ly/2zicEA1

SEATTLE, WA ADDS PEOPLE WITHOUT ADDING TRAFFIC
-> Streetsblog USA reports Seattle is showing other American cities how transit can help a growing population get around without an increase in car traffic. The city added about 20,000 new residents in 2016, a population increase of about 3%. But traffic volumes didn't increase at all. Driving mileage stayed flat in 2016. Seattle's population has grown 21% since 2006, vehicle mileage has fallen 3.3% and transit ridership grew 41.8 % over the same period. http://bit.ly/2zneXBK

SEATTLE, WA DOCKLESS BIKE SHARE EXPERIENCE TO LEAD TO REGS
-> Next City reports ridership numbers look good for private, dockless bike-share companies Spin, LimeBike and Ofo, after almost six months of operation in Seattle, WA. As of the beginning of December, the 3 companies had served up 347,300 rides totaling 1,052,061 miles. The biggest problem is bike parking. Because the bikes use a rear wheel lock instead of locking to a rack or dock, users can and do park them anywhere. Because the bikes aren't locked to anything, there's also the issue of vandals throwing them in lakes and other inconvenient places. Proper parking is going to be a factor in regulations Seattle DOT is creating. SDOT is considering making corrals for the bike-share bikes. They would paint boxes on the edge of sidewalks out of the right-of-way and on streets protected by physical barriers in the last 20 to 30 feet of a block before an intersection where it's illegal for cars to park. http://bit.ly/2znqj8Y

PEOPLEFORBIKES'10 BEST NEW US BIKEWAYS OF 2017
-> PeopleForBikes identified the 10 new bikeways that most impressed them in 2017 and describes each one. They include the PATH Parkway in Atlanta, GA; MoPac Mobility Bridges in Austin, TX; and Jackson Street in Saint. Paul, MN. http://bit.ly/2zi1ZFH


THE RESEARCH BEAT

HOW TO DEFINE AND MEASURE PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC DEATHS
-> An article in the Journal of Transport & Health integrates and expands on two papers on pedestrian travel deaths it had published earlier this year: one paper on pedestrian fatality data and the importance of definitions for gathering data, and another on the definition of 'traffic crashes' that argued to include pedestrian falls in the public realm or space in the definition of traffic crashes. With regard to pedestrian deaths, three concepts need to be defined adequately: 'Pedestrian', 'Public Space' and 'Traffic crash.' "How to Define and Measure Pedestrian Traffic Deaths?" http://bit.ly/2BO3XTq

NOISE EXPOSURE & POTENTIAL HEARING LOSS WHILE COMMUTING
-> A recent article in the Journal of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery described a study of exposure to noise on boarding platforms and in subways, streetcars, and buses in the Toronto Mass Transit system; in a moving car; riding on a bike; and walking. Researchers concluded although the mean average noise levels on the Toronto transit system are within the recommended level of safe noise exposure, cumulative intermittent bursts of impulse noise (peak noise exposures) particularly on bus routes have the potential to place individuals at risk for noise induced hearing loss. Noise exposures from personal transportation modalities in an urban city, particularly cycling are also sufficiently intense to produce noise induced hearing loss. "Noise Exposure While Commuting in Toronto - A Study of Personal and Public Transportation in Toronto" http://bit.ly/2BJG00o

NATURALISTIC BICYCLING BEHAVIOR PILOT STUDY
-> FL DOT released a report that examines data from a naturalistic bicycling behavior pilot study in Tampa Bay to determine contributing factors to bicycling crashes. The report also explores the behavior, experience, and interactions between bicyclists and drivers making right or left turns at intersections; interactions between bicyclists and drivers at night; bicyclist route-choice decisions with given origins and destinations; and the influence of formal bicycle-riding training on riders. The report recommends education, engineering, and enforcement countermeasures to significantly improve bicycle safety. "Naturalistic Bicycling Behavior Pilot Study" http://bit.ly/2BMQ3kB

ACTIVE COMMUTING, EXERCISE IMPACTS ON FAT LOSS
-> The International Journal of Obesity published a study that examined the effects of active commuting and leisure-time exercise on fat loss in 130 women and men who were overweight or obese. Researchers concluded a meaningful fat loss was obtained by 6 months of active commuting and leisure-time exercise, but fat loss was greater with vigorous compared with moderate intensity exercise. Active commuting is an alternative to leisure-time exercise in the management of overweight and obesity. "Effects of Active Commuting and Leisure-Time Exercise on Fat Loss in Women and Men with Overweight and Obesity: A Randomized Controlled Trial" http://bit.ly/2BHnKEJ

BUILT ENVIRONMENTS, WALKING, SOCIOECONOMIC CONTEXT
-> The Journal of the American Planning Association published a study that reviewed 17 articles and found that most show that the built environment has weaker effects on walking and physical activity for disadvantaged than advantaged groups. Researchers conclude defining walkability entirely in built environment terms may fail to account for important social and individual/household characteristics and other non-built environment factors that challenge disadvantaged groups, including fear of crime and lack of social support. "Contextualizing Walkability: Do Relationships Between Built Environments and Walking Vary by Socioeconomic Context?" http://bit.ly/2BHYiz5

ARE MULTIMODAL TRAVELERS MORE SATISFIED WITH THEIR LIVES?
-> A study published in Cities asked how the ability to use multiple transportation options affects one's subjective wellbeing (SWB), including aspects such as physical health, financial security, standard of living, and personal relationships. A clearer understanding of these associations can inform investments in multimodal infrastructure. Researchers found that having more transportation choices can improve standard of living for low- and middle-income residents. Multimodal middle-income residents are also more satisfied with their health and what they are achieving in life. Vehicle owners report higher levels of satisfaction with their standard of living, health, and achievements, compared to non-owners, unless auto is their only travel mode. Only low-income respondents had significant differences in standard of living by where they lived, with greatest satisfaction in the urban core. "Are Multimodal Travelers More Satisfied with Their Lives? A Study of Accessibility and Wellbeing in the Denver, Colorado Metropolitan Area" http://bit.ly/2BGRWjn

NEW BEHAVIORAL TRAFFIC SAFETY COOPERATIVE RESEARCH PROGRAM
-> The Transportation Research Board (TRB) announced its Behavioral Traffic Safety Cooperative Research Program (BTSCRP), a new cooperative research program to provide practical solutions to save lives, prevent injuries, and reduce costs of road traffic crashes associated with unsafe behaviors. Through funding from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the BTSCRP will conduct research projects proposed and selected by State Highway Safety Offices. BTSCRP is jointly managed by NHTSA and the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA), and executed by TRB. http://bit.ly/2B5W4Fj

[See Jobs section for a call for panel nominations for this program.]

CYCLIST-RELATED CONTENT IN NOVICE DRIVER EDUCATION & TRAINING
-> A case study in Accident Analysis & Prevention reports cyclists and drivers often share road space, usually without indication from the built environment about how to maximize each other's safety and utility. Yet despite this regular interaction, cyclists are largely absent from the driver licensing process in Australia. Novice drivers are not taught how to share the road with cyclists. This case study used a mixed methods approach to examine the cyclist-related content in the Graduated Driver Licensing System (GDLS) in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). Outcomes from this study have directly informed a new vulnerable road user driver license competency in the ACT and findings include recommendations for greater inclusion of cyclists in the driver licensing system. "Cyclist-Related Content in Novice Driver Education and Training" http://bit.ly/2znD6bo

VEHICLE HOURS TRAVELED BY STATE
-> US DOT Volpe Center recently completed an in-depth study for FHWA and produced detailed statistics on travel speeds and vehicle hours traveled (VHT) the number of hours licensed drivers spend traveling each day across every state. The Volpe team found that, on average, American drivers spend just under an hour driving every day. The new VHT data will provide the basis for transportation experts to develop reliable estimates of road travel delays for metropolitan areas and nationwide. Because the VHT estimates are constructed from detailed spatial and temporal data, transportation professionals will also be able to distinguish between normal rush-hour delays and delays caused by incidents, road construction projects, special events, or abnormal weather. http://bit.ly/2BHDDLt

COMMUNICATING SCIENCE EFFECTIVELY
-> The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine notes though science and technology are embedded in virtually every aspect of modern life, communicating science effectively is a complex task and an acquired skill. Moreover, the approaches to communicating science that will be most effective for specific audiences and circumstances are not obvious. Fortunately, there is an expanding science base from diverse disciplines that can support science communicators in making these determinations. Their book, "Communicating Science Effectively: A Research Agenda" (http://bit.ly/2znVssN), was their second most downloaded publication this year.


QUOTES R US

"We would love to see development plans put people at the center in their consideration of the public realm. It's easy to just forge ahead with a design "vision" and focus on the numbers and the amenities that might be attractive to prospective tenants, but that doesn't get at the fundamentals of what people like to do in public space, and the behaviors they exhibit when a place feels safe and comfortable and beautiful."
Shin-pei Tsay, Gehl Institute Executive Director commenting on the outcome they would like to see from people using their Tools for Measuring Public Life: http://bit.ly/2znmOj2

[See Resources section for details on the Tools for Measuring Public Life.]

AND NOW, FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT...

CHINA'S 50-LANE TRAFFIC JAM
CityLab reports traffic after the holidays tend to be pretty awful. But China may have just turned every driver's worst nightmare into reality as hundreds of millions of people headed home at the end of a weeklong national holiday this fall. Thousands of motorists found themselves stranded on in what looks from above like a 50-lane parking lot on the G4 Beijing-Hong Kong-Macau Expressway, one of the country's busiest roads.

This report establishes an approach to evaluate Complete Streets programs with a focus on health equity for these jurisdictions and others around the US. The analysis identifies those populations facing the greatest health and safety risks and focuses on how Complete Streets can better serve these vulnerable communities. The report includes a list of recommended performance measures to evaluate Complete Streets through a health equity lens. http://bit.ly/2BDEz3i

PARTNERING WITH MPOS TO ADVANCE HEALTHY COMMUNITIES
-> The American Public Health Association produced a primer for public health professionals, entitled Partnering with Metropolitan Planning Organizations to Advance Healthy Communities that explains the main functions of an MPO and how to partner to advance healthy communities. Organizations not typically considered as having a public health focus, such as MPOs, have the opportunity to simultaneously promote the public's health and advance other important policy goals to achieve co-benefits and create efficiencies across sector. Transportation planning affects more than just transportation. It also impacts our air quality, traffic injuries and fatalities, land use and access to jobs and medical care. http://bit.ly/2BIfiFv

HP2020 NUTRITION, PHYSICAL ACTIVITY, AND OBESITY INFOGRAPHIC
-> The USC Prevention Research Center Notes reports the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion released an infographic highlighting progress in Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity (http://bit.ly/2BIwavN), one of the Healthy People 2020 Leading Health Indicators. Using data from the National Health Interview Survey and the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, the Healthy People 2020 target of having 20.1% of adults 18 years or older meet physical activity guidelines has been met. However, a decrease is still needed in obesity rates for adults and children and adolescents. http://bit.ly/2BHMGvW

GUIDELINES FOR AN EFFECTIVE VISION ZERO ACTION PLAN
-> The Vision Zero Network, LivableStreets Alliance and the MA Vision Zero Coalition have developed a guide to help Vision Zero communities build an implementation plan that is concrete and action driven, while being responsive to the context and needs of the community served. They aim to clearly define core principles of Vision Zero, underscore baseline practices needed in any strong plan, and to lift up exemplary work from current Vision Zero communities. The guide lays out two key areas of a strong Action Plan: Foundational Elements and Actionable Strategies, which are both underpinned by a process of continued Community Engagement and attention to prioritizing Equity. Model policies and examples from Vision Zero cities are included throughout, as well as how-tos for maintaining a focus on equity. "Vision, Strategies, Action: Guidelines for an Effective Vision Zero Action Plan" http://bit.ly/2zn7kv8

CDC RECOMMENDATIONS TO INCREASE PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
-> The USC Prevention Research Center Notes reports the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a 2-page handout of real-world examples of built environment interventions and answers to frequently asked questions. (The Community Preventive Services Task Force's Built Environment Recommendation to Increase Physical Activity: Real World Examples: http://bit.ly/2BGUaz9) It highlights 8 communities across the US that implemented strategies to increase active transportation and land use or design policies encouraging outdoor activity. http://bit.ly/2BHMGvW

ECONOMIC IMPACTS OF OUTDOOR RECREATION
-> Outdoor recreation is a driving force in the American economy, generating more than $887 billion in annual spending and supporting tens of millions of jobs across the country. The American Recreation Coalition's new report "Outdoor Recreation Outlook 2018" covers the economic benefits of America's Great Outdoors. http://bit.ly/2zn0Xbz

IMPROVING FINDABILITY & RELEVANCE OF TRANSPORTATION INFO
-> The Transportation Research Board released a series of videos featuring "NCHRP Report 846: Improving Findability and Relevance of Transportation Information." (http://bit.ly/2BRcXXV) The videos aim to help practitioners define a management framework, identify successful practices for organizing and classifying information, and develop federated or enterprise search procedures.
