Protecting People Biking and Walking through Intersections

We may one day remember 2015 as the Year of the Protected Intersection. In August, Davis became the first American city to implement protected bike intesections, with Salt Lake City, Austin, and Boston hot on its heels to construct their own. Additionally, Vancouver began pioneering techniques to provide pedestrians and bicyclists protection at the most dangerous conflict points on the road. With simple geometric and operational adjustments, these cities are raising the bar for designing safer and more accessible streets for active users.
