THE NATIONAL & INTERNATIONAL SCENE

UTRECHT, THE NETHERLANDS: PLANNING FOR PEOPLE, NOT CARS VIDEO
-> CityLab reported that StreetFilms has released a new 13-minute film, "Utrecht: Planning for People, Not Cars." It reveals how the Dutch city reengineered itself around the bicycle, with life- and money-saving results. In Utrecht, the fourth-largest and fastest-growing city in the Netherlands, population 330,000, average daily bike trips number 125,000. Today, 98% of Utrecht households own at least one bike, according to the film; half own 3 or more. Nationally, bikes now outnumber people. http://bit.ly/2XAgHUk

WHY ARE US DRIVERS KILLING SO MANY PEOPLE WALKING?
-> Strong Towns reported while some may regard a pedestrian death toll that has grown by 50% in less than a decade as somehow unavoidable, the recent experience of European countries suggests that there's nothing about modern life that means the pedestrian death toll must be high and rising. Europeans have high rates of car ownership and as many smart phones as Americans. It used to be that the number of pedestrian deaths per million population was higher in Europe, but the US pedestrian death rate per million population is now 75% higher than in Europe. Even though walking is far more common in Europe, streets are generally narrower, and in older cities there aren't sidewalks, forcing pedestrians to share the roadway with cars. http://bit.ly/2JlHboX

LAW INSISTS AMERICANS HAVE TO DRIVE
-> Gregory H. Shill in a CityLab article states that in America, the freedom of movement comes with an asterisk: the obligation to drive. This truism has been echoed by the US Supreme Court, which has pronounced car ownership a "virtual necessity." In a sense, America is car-dependent by choice-but it is also car-dependent by law. In an article to be published in the New York University Law Review next year, Shill describes how over the course of several generations, lawmakers rewrote the rules of American life to conform to the interests of Big Oil, the auto barons, and the car-loving one-percenters of the Roaring Twenties. (Should Law Subsidize Driving?: http://bit.ly/2JvUKB0) They gave legal force to a mindset-let's call it automobile supremacy-that kills 40,000 Americans a year and seriously injures more than 4 million. http://bit.ly/2JwHITT

VISION ZERO LINKING POLICE DATA & TRAUMA CENTER DATA
-> Vision Zero Network reported access to comprehensive and accurate data is critical to Vision Zero successfully addressing the public health crisis of nearly 40,000 preventable traffic fatalities annually. A new effort-Vision Zero Injury Prevention Research Collaborative (VZIPR: http://bit.ly/2JlqJVv), being led jointly by the San Francisco Department of Public Health's Program on Health, Equity and Sustainability (SFDPH-PHES) and Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center (ZSFG)-is working to fill the data gaps in transportation-related injuries and deaths and ensure that all people, especially our most vulnerable, are counted. Check out the archive of a recent webinar that featured those leading this pioneering and transformative initiative to systematically link police data with data from trauma centers to better capture traffic injuries and fatalities and more fully inform San Francisco's Vision Zero priorities and investments. http://bit.ly/2Jlsiml

DESIGNING ROADWAY INFRASTRUCTURE THRU LENS OF CHILD SAFETY
-> An article published by Meeting of the Minds began; "If you could experience the city from the elevation of 95 centimeters (37 inches)-the height of the average three-year-old child-what would you change?" A session on this topic was part of this year's MOBILIZE, the annual sustainable transport summit of the Institute for Transportation and Development (ITDP). Each panelist also asked some variation on the question, "Why aren't roadway deaths among pedestrians and cyclists framed as senseless and preventable the same way fatal airline crashes are?" http://bit.ly/2XD83EI

TECHNOLOGY CLAIMS TO DETECT "HIDDEN PEDESTRIANS"
-> SmartCitiesWorld reported on Viziblezone (http://bit.ly/2JmPqAZ), which claims that its prototype system can detect pedestrians even hidden behind objects at distances of up to 150 meters (492 feet). Using the wide distribution of mobile devices among pedestrians, Viziblezone transforms them into "smart beacons" that cars can see and then avoid. The solution is designed to operate and save lives under any weather and visibility conditions. Viziblezone is preparing for the mass deployment of its solution for application in both conventional, and autonomous vehicles. It plans to provide the pedestrian detector component free of charge for mobile manufacturers, with a one-time license fee for every unit installed in the cars. http://bit.ly/2JmqtWw

LONDON, ENGLAND CYCLISTS RIDE NEARLY 2.5 M MILES/DAY
-> Streetsblog USA reported London, England's painstaking network of new bike lanes, its refurbished signals at intersections, and its world-renowned traffic congestion policies, all of which are paying off with record ridership. Cyclists in the British capital rode an average of nearly 2.5 million miles per day last year, up 5% from the previous year, according to city figures. Only 27% of cyclists are women and about 85% of cyclists are white, a figure that has changed little since the construction of protected bike paths on roadways. New York City has the same male-female ratio, but unlike London, is seeing cycling numbers start to flat-line because of safety concerns. http://bit.ly/2JoTBwn

COPENHAGENIZE INDEX NAMES WORLD'S 20 TOP BIKE-FRIENDLY CITIES
-> Wired reported the fifth edition of the Copenhagenize Index, a comprehensive and holistic ranking of the world's most bicycle-friendly cities, evaluated and ranked more than 115 cities from around the world using 14 parameters that focus on ambition, culture, and streetscape design. (Read about methodology: http://bit.ly/2XwhwO5.) The top 20 most bike-friendly cities include two in Canada (Montréal and Vancouver), but none in the US. The top five are Copenhagen, Amsterdam; Utrecht, Antwerp, and Strasbourg. Read details about each top city and how more recent actions have put it there. http://bit.ly/2XBw9jl

DUTCH TRAFFIC FLOWS WHEN PEOPLE INTERACT IN A HUMAN WAY
-> Bicycle Dutch posted a one-minute video of an Amsterdam intersection, which got a lot of attention two months ago. It shows many different types of bicycles and people passing by in all sorts of vehicles. To locals, the intersection looks busy but fairly ordinary-meanwhile, to many others, this flow of cyclists and pedestrians was extraordinary. Dutch intersections work a bit differently compared to most other countries. In this post Bicycle Dutch includes the complete five-minute video that shows the intersection from different angles. http://bit.ly/2XCTZuX

DEBUNKING 10 COMMON MYTHS ABOUT BIKE LANES
-> The Guardian reported that it's time to demolish 10 of the most common myths about cycle infrastructure. Perhaps the most common myth is that cycle lanes increase congestion (and thus pollution). The idea of induced demand-the idea that more road space brings more cars-has played out in cities over the course of decades. Bike lanes are a much more efficient use of the same road space; able to carry more people overall, per area. Most compelling of all, of course, is the fact that motor vehicles cause the congestion in the first place, and the only real way to reduce traffic congestion is to have fewer of them on the roads. See the article for the other nine myths, and the points that debunk them. http://bit.ly/2JlHdwY


REGIONAL AND LOCAL ACTIONS

NEW YORK, NY CONSIDERS PRIORITIZING PEDS, CYCLISTS & TRANSIT USERS
-> Gotham Gazette reported New York City Council Speaker Corey Johnson has spoken out about "breaking car culture," or prioritizing pedestrians, cyclists, and mass transit in public policy rather than private automobiles. Breaking the car culture is at the center of Johnson's proposed "master plan for city streets" (http://bit.ly/2XzugDR), new legislation that would require the city Department of Transportation (DOT) to improve pedestrian and cyclist access and safety by establishing benchmarks. The plan would also, in five-year increments, aggressively build out a network of bike lanes, bus lanes, and pedestrian plazas that would almost certainly transform the city. By 2024, the master plan would institute a connected bike network across the city, install many miles of protected bus lanes, install accessible pedestrian signals at all intersections with a pedestrian signal, redesign all intersections with a pedestrian signal according to a checklist of street design elements designed to enhance safety, and complete all these improvements within the standards for accessible design held by the Americans with Disabilities Act. http://bit.ly/2XwnHSh

NEW YORK, NY RESPONSE TO 15 CYCLISTS' DEATHS: THREE WEEKS OF ENFORCEMENT
-> Jalopnik reported a shocking rise in the number of pedestrians and cyclists dying on New York City streets. Lax traffic enforcement has helped contribute to a wave of cyclists being hit by cars-15 people have been killed while riding bikes so far this year. In response, the New York City Police Department has announced it will more strongly enforce some traffic laws, for three weeks. This is not a plan to stop cyclists from dying. It is, in fact, an explanation for why it keeps happening. This enforcement blitz begs the question: what happens when the three weeks are up? This response is a grand experiment in what happens when traffic laws aren't adhered to, least of all respected. http://bit.ly/2XFohgL

OP-ED: COMMUNITIES OF COLOR NEED PROTECTED LANES, TOO!
-> An op-ed published by Streetsblog NYC noted that the installation of protected bike lanes in New York City has been heavily skewed towards certain (wealthier) neighborhoods in Manhattan. The bike-infrastructure inequities among neighborhoods are hard to square with Mayor de Blasio's stated goal of knitting together the "two cities" of New York. Some may argue that it's impossible to upgrade the city's many bike lanes to protected ones. Not true: While it does take designers and funds, it is political will above all that is needed. A side-by-side comparison of the 2009 and 2019 bike maps show that the city has constructed many protected lanes in Manhattan, but not many in the outer boroughs-and especially not in poorer neighborhoods. http://bit.ly/2JlpA0e

WI GOVERNOR SIGNS SCOOTER LAW
-> Urban Milwaukee reported Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers signed legislation legalizing scooters. (Senate Bill 152: http://bit.ly/2Jnb5Jg) The bill, which goes into effect today, clears up ambiguity about the legal status of electric scooters, reduces the need for single-occupancy automobiles, and grants municipalities the ability to regulate safety and access. Municipalities can now regulate the size of dockless scooter fleets, areas in which they may operate, and whether users can ride on the sidewalk. The law authorizes scooters to go up to 15 miles per hour on city streets. See the article for details about this law and its impact on Milwaukee. As many as six scooter companies could soon be deploying hundreds of scooters each on their streets. http://bit.ly/2JmR3yO

LORAIN, OH PUBLIC LIBRARY LAUNCHES FREE BIKE SHARE
-> The Lorain, OH Public Library System launched its bike share program in May in collaboration with Lorain County Public Health (LCPH), the Lorain County Metro Parks, and the Lorain County Community Action Agency. People can use a library card to check out one of the adult bikes available, courtesy of the Lorain Police Department. Helmets and locks are also free and can be checked out without a bike. The bikes are available for checkout when the library opens and must be returned before closing. The National Safety Council's Road to Zero initiative awarded LCPH a one-year $69,976 Safe Systems Innovation Grant, a portion of which funds the Go Lorain Bike Share, bike racks throughout town, bike maintenance supplies, educational materials, baskets, bike lights, locks, advertising, and bike maps. http://bit.ly/2JnyMS4

Bicycling magazine reported Go Lorain is part of a growing trend in which libraries are getting involved in bike share programs. See links to: Georgetown Public Library, TX; Bethlehem Public Library, PA; Kent District Library, MI and U Mass Library. http://bit.ly/2Jo6mr5

MADISON, WI LAUNCHES ALL E-BIKE BIKE SHARE
-> Wisconsin Bike Fed reported Madison BCycle (http://bit.ly/32g2Y8T) launched the first all-electric citywide bikeshare program in the country June 18. Trek Bicycle and the City of Madison partnered in creating the bikeshare program. In her remarks at the official launch, the Mayor of Madison also called on all involved to ensure that the benefits of bike share systems, bike infrastructure, and other transportation investments benefit everyone in the community, including those without smartphones, bank accounts, or drivers licenses. In Wisconsin, current state law doesn't recognize modern electric bicycles, leaving them in a regulatory gray area. The Wisconsin Bike Fed is leading the stakeholder organizations working with state government to pass an "e-bike bill," (Senate Bill 129 / Assembly 132: http://bit.ly/2NHQOlV), which defines e-bikes as a new type of vehicle and regulates them like other bicycles. http://bit.ly/32fryH5

PITTSBURGH, PA: DENSITY, POPULATION & HILLS AFFECT CYCLING RATES
-> BikePGH reported when it comes to biking, there are a lot of factors that impact where people in Pittsburgh ride and why. The Green Building Alliance's Make My Trip Count survey found bicycling is on the increase in Pittsburgh, though different neighborhoods experience this growth in different ways. BikePGH took a deeper look into the data, considering neighborhood population, density, and elevation. http://bit.ly/2JsgjSQ

CHICAGO, IL CALLS FOR CONGESTION PRICING, MORE ACTIVE TRANSPO $
-> Smart Cities Dive reported a group of transportation companies and advocates sent a letter to Chicago's new mayor suggesting the adoption of transportation policies that could reduce congestion and pollution while increasing locals' economic and social mobility. Two points they requested the mayor consider are congestion pricing and dedicated funding to improve sustainable modes of transportation including walking, biking, and public transit, while embracing innovations such as micro-transit. http://bit.ly/2XC9JhU

NAPLES, FL: 70 MI + PARADISE COAST TRAIL
-> Naples, FL Pathways Coalition announced the Paradise Coast Trail it envisions to be a premier, 70+ mile trail built exclusively for safe and enjoyable walking, running, and biking. Connecting Naples, Ave Maria, Immokalee and many other areas within and beyond Collier County, it will expand transportation options, improve health and wellness, reduce carbon footprints, and provide a destination to experience the Paradise Coast's unique beauty. They have partnered with Rails to Trails Conservancy and hired a consulting firm to help bring this vision to reality. Recently the Collier Metropolitan Planning Organization voted in support of a resolution endorsing the project. They are now seeking donations to fund the feasibility study to fast-track the trail's development and not wait on the typical five-year improvement project time frame. http://bit.ly/2XvIWUo


THE RESEARCH BEAT

BAD AIR 2X IMPACT ON LUNG FUNCTION FOR POOR, INCREASES COPD RISK 3X
-> AirQualityNews.com reported air pollution has twice the impact on lung function for members of lower-income households and it increases their risk of developing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) by three times. In research published in the European Respiratory Journal, scientists from universities in Canada, Switzerland, and the UK studied the data of more than 300,000 people aged 40-69 who enrolled in the UK Biobank study. (Air pollution, Lung Function and COPD: Results from the Population-Based UK Biobank Study: http://bit.ly/2JqaBSZ) Their aim was to examine whether exposure to PM10, PM2.5 and NO2 was linked to changes in lung function. They also wanted to find out whether it affected participants' risk of developing COPD. http://bit.ly/2JoZ7PG

TRANSPORTATION RESEARCH RECORD: JOURNAL OF THE TRANSPORTATION RESEARCH BOARD
-> Papers recently released through the Transportation Research Record: Journal of the Transportation Research Board OnlineFirst portal include:

- CRASHES, SIGNAL TREATMENTS & PROTECTED BIKE LANE INTERSECTIONS
-> This study builds on the success of New York City's protected bicycle lanes (PBLs) through improving the understanding and impacts of two primary intersection design treatments for single-direction PBLs: the mixing zone and fully split phase signal. Researchers found that following the installation of PBLs, the rate of crashes per bicyclist decreased by an average of 30%. They also identified similar benefits between mixing zones and fully split phases at intersections with lower turn volumes while at higher turn volume locations the shorter mixing zones have the lowest crash rates. Bicyclist Crash Comparison of Mixing Zone and Fully Split Phase Signal Treatments at Intersections with Protected Bicycle Lanes in New York City: http://bit.ly/2XFWvWo

- BIKE INFRASTRUCTURE USER PREFERENCES IN EMERGING CYCLING CULTURES
-> This paper discusses the findings of a survey in six Alabama and Tennessee communities, where cycling is not (yet) widely adopted. The analysis includes linear regression models built on respondents' reactions to images of bicycling infrastructure and their perceptions of being comfortable, safe, and willing to try cycling on the displayed roadway type. Findings indicate a preference for more separated bicycle infrastructure types, along with options that exclude on-street parking. User Preferences for Bicycle Infrastructure in Communities with Emerging Cycling Cultures: http://bit.ly/2XBCJLt

- BUILT ENVIRONMENT FACTORS AFFECTING BIKE SHARING RIDERSHIP
-> This work used a data-driven method to correlate arrivals and departures of station-based bike sharing systems with built environment factors in six German cities, and three elsewhere in Europe and North America. The most influencing variables were related to the city population, distance to city center, leisure-related establishments, and transport-related infrastructure. This data-driven method can help as a support decision-making tool to implement or expand bike sharing systems. Built Environment Factors Affecting Bike Sharing Ridership: Data-Driven Approach for Multiple Cities: http://bit.ly/2XA2USX

- IDENTIFYING TRAINING FOR YOUNG DRIVERS WHO CRASHED W/ CYCLISTS
-> This study compared bicycle-motor-vehicle (BMV) crashes involving novice drivers (under 25 years) with those involving experienced drivers in three Australian states. Novice drivers were involved in only a small proportion of BMV crashes and were not over-represented on a per-license basis. For both driver groups, most crashes happened on lower-speed roads, at intersections, and during the day. In contrast to expectations, the distribution of types of BMV crashes differed little between experienced and novice drivers. Young Driver Crashes with Cyclists: Identifying Training Opportunities: http://bit.ly/2XDMWqT

LEGAL FRAMEWORK & ROLES IN MAAS ECOSYSTEMS
-> SmartCitiesWorld reported the released of a study by the Mobility-as-a-Service Alliance to help support development of mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) by improving the common understanding of the legal framework and roles of public and private partners in MaaS implementations. (Study on Market Access and Competition Issues Related to MaaS: http://bit.ly/2JomlFl) The study focuses on market access and competition issues related to MaaS in the context of European Union (EU) law. Different local interpretations and uncertainties in the legal framework have held up market access and provision of MaaS services in European cities. http://bit.ly/2JpwnpW


QUOTES R US

"City street redesign efforts need to increase in pace. We think they're good and we're very supportive of what the city does each year on the streets. But I don't think there's been a recognition that the return to transportation growth led by cars has a big safety implication that needs to be matched by the city's efforts."
--Jon Orcutt, spokesman at Bike New York and former policy director at the NYC DOT commenting on a surge in fatalities and climbing traffic injuries, particularly worrisome to cyclists, for whom "six inches could be the difference between brushing yourself off or getting killed" in a crash. http://bit.ly/2JLDFmX

ALTERNATIVE INTERSECTIONS & INTERCHANGES: PED & CYCLIST SAFETY
-> The Transportation Research Board provided an overview of research underway to develop a guide for transportation practitioners to improve and integrate pedestrian and bicycle safety considerations at alternative intersections and interchanges (AII) through planning, design, and operational treatments that (1) identify and evaluate current practices and emerging technologies and trends in the U.S. and internationally; (2) describe current best practices for measuring the effectiveness of such AII treatments; (3) evaluate the safety and operational outcomes of specific AII treatments; and (4) identify and rank treatments for typical types of projects. The primary focus of the research is roadway functional classifications of collector and above.

INTERACTIVE TOOL: TRANSPORTATION DATA INTEGRATION & ANALYTICS
-> Missouri DOT released a report that discusses its web-based platform to utilize big data. MoDOT regularly collects and stores various types of large datasets containing treasure troves of information that could be fused and mined, but the size and complexity of data mining requires the use of advanced tools. TITAN is an initial prototype of an interactive web-based platform developed to demonstrate the possibilities of using big data software.

HOW E-BIKES CAN IMPROVE SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORTATION
-> Portland State University provides several resources to consider how e-bikes can improve sustainable transportation and their untapped potential to attract new bicyclists (http://bit.ly/2JLAn35), including two recently released white papers: (Both papers are free after registration).

- E-BIKES, PERSON MILES TRAVELLED & GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS
-> This white paper explores the potential e-bike effect on person miles traveled (PMT) and greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in terms of CO2 for varying levels of e-bike mode share replacement. Authors created a model for PMT shift and GHG reduction potential for Portland, OR. Total transportation emissions in Portland can be significantly reduced as e-bike mode share increases: a reduction in CO2 emissions of over 900 metric tons per day for a 15%-point e-bike mode share by trips case (13.9% in mode share by miles traveled), down 11% from Portland's current CO2 emissions of 8,000 metric tons per day. Estimating the Effect of E-bikes On Person Miles Travelled and Greenhouse Gas Emissions: http://bit.ly/2KJufdq

- E-BIKE INCENTIVE PROGRAMS TO EXPAND THE MARKET
-> This white paper compares traditional bike incentive programs to electric bike incentive programs to identify best practices and lessons learned. It provides techniques to develop and structure e-bike incentive programs to help meet single occupancy vehicle and vehicle miles travelled reduction objectives. Of the e-bike programs the authors explored, none appeared to apply equity considerations in determining eligibility or rebate amount. How E-Bike Incentive Programs are Used to Expand the Market: http://bit.ly/2KCQQZk

PRACTICES FOR ONLINE PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT
-> The Transportation Research Board released a report that summarizes current practices regarding online public participation strategies state departments of transportation use, and the effectiveness of using these strategies and tools. (Practices for Online Public Involvement: A Synthesis of Highway Practice: http://bit.ly/2XBQOZv) Online public participation methods offer agencies the potential for expanded participation and also present new challenges and demand new thinking about the appropriate mix of techniques in a public participation program, communication protocols, staffing and skill requirements, and how best to integrate emerging online engagement tools with traditional face-to-face methods such as public meetings.

HARVARD MEDICAL SCHOOL: WALKING FOR HEALTH
-> A Harvard Medical School HEALTHbeat article reported five surprising benefits of walking, which: counteracts the effects of weight-promoting genes; helps tame a sweet tooth; reduces the risk of developing breast cancer; eases joint pain; and boosts immune function. See the article for details: http://bit.ly/2XznTQX. Learn more in Walking for Health, a booklet created by the experts at Harvard Medical School (http://bit.ly/2XCVN73, $29). It describes why walking may be the most perfect exercise, to how to get started on a walking program, to specific walking workouts. It even has a special section on walking for weight loss.

PHOTOS: SOME OF WORLD'S BEST & WORST CYCLING INFRASTRUCTURE
-> The Guardian published photo examples of "the good, the bad and the ugly" cycling infrastructure from around the world. http://bit.ly/2XzRPw3
