Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Texas Share the Road traffic safety program/campaigns

The Transportation Communications News e-letter mentioned a bike safety video produced by the Harlingen-San Benito MPO, but the piece they referenced from the Valley Morning News, "With help, MPO produces bike safety video," didn't include a link to the video. Neither did the MPO's Facebook feed.

But the MPO's feed mentioned a video by Share the Road Texas, the traffic safety initiative by that state's Department of Transportation.

Share the Road Texas does a good job in breaking data down in useful ways, in infographics and graphic forms generally, differentiating data by time of day, urban and rural land use, county, age group, etc.

I was impressed.

They have Twitter and Facebook feeds, etc.

This is the video:

Bicycle Safety: Mid-Block from TTI on Vimeo.

And this is one of the infographics:
