"Perils for Pedestrians" is a public affairs series promoting awareness of issues affecting the safety of people who walk and bicycle. We interview pedestrian and bicycling advocates, planners, and government officials about problems such as missing sidewalks and crosswalks, dangerous intersections, barriers to children walking to school, and obstacles to wheelchair users and people with disabilities -- and solutions to those problems.
